Since there has been recent interest over the Schwinn Approved "Le Tour GT300" Derailleur (aka Crane GS) used on 1970s Paramount P-15s, I posted a couple of photos on my Wool Jersey Paramount page. To view the photos, go to the following address:


This was the original factory equipped derailleur on my 1973 P-15, which the original owner immediately replaced with a 1st generation Campagnolo Rally. Luckily he kept the original GT300 and included it when I purchased the bike from him. While I am a Campy fan through-and-through,,,it's hard to beat the shifting of these derailleurs for wide range touring freewheels!!!

Hope these photos are helpful to those restoring 1970s Paramounts!
