I have an undisputed original Paramount tandem with all of those faertures, and I have seen others the same. I was a bit surprised by the seatstays on mine, but I've since acquired a very early 60's chrome Schwinn Superior single with the same stays, same fillet brazing, same seat post collar. It seems the older features survived lonnger on the Paramount tandem as opposed to the single bike, plus the lugless construction often makes sense on tandems.

The bike also has a fully sloping fork crown. None of these details conform to my knowledge of Paramount singles. The only things that keep the bike from looking utterly cheap are the Campy parts and the forged dropouts.

Is it really a Paramount?

Hi, All---

Theft and fencing known stolen goods is a serious charge, and something at this point we cannot prove. But...

Who the heck a) rattle cans a Paramount... b)without taking off the components!!!??? A doubly unpardonable sin. Clearly, no matter what the status of the bike, that graffiti artist is going to bicycle Hades when he dies.
