Subject: [CR]For Sale: 1962-63 Paramount Frameset

This was one of only 99 Paramount framesets built between 10/15/62 and 1/01/63 [Correct, that's only 5-6 per week!] Serial number is stamped on both the frame and the steering tube. As usual, Reynolds double-butted 531 with Nervex lugs (Nervex BB shell too) and Campy #1010 dropouts.

I had picked this up from a List member several years ago with the best of intentions of restoring it. It has been sitting awaiting my attention ever since. Unfortunately, it is a small size, so it has remained a low priority.

Seat Tube is 21" (53cm) center-to-top and Top Tube is 22" (56cm) center-to-center.

A worthy restoration project, especially for someone who could actually ride it. I simply have too many other bike projects and it seems that I may never get around to this one. I would really like to see this go to someone on the CR List so I know it will get proper care... rather than eventually just throwing it to the wolves on eBay.

I'm certainly not looking to make any profit off of this sale. Asking $150 - plus actual shipping. Probably UPS or FEDEX ground would be lowest cost and fastest too, so just check rates from 87109 to estimate what shipping may cost - figure maybe 10-12 lbs total shipping weight, at most.

Thanks!
