.... agree with the others. have seen on occassion a restored '55 (# 421 on the middle of the bb) around these parts, and it has ... keyhole styled lugs, adjustable stem, and high flange wheels. i have been told this may be the last year that schwinn did an "all schwinn" parts list for paramounts. the top eyes are a very small oval plate, not the round ball type as seen on harvey's. yes, a serial # would be the key here ... also original pedals for these are very hard to find ... or so we've been told.
