Sorry, but that's no Paramount.  The factory did not offer fastback stays, braze-on fr derailleur hangers, internal cable routing or short rear drop outs, especially in 1973.

It's certainly a beautiful bike, whatever it is.  It's just too bad someone spent a lot of money to paint it as a Paramount...

Len sez:  Piddling around ebay when I should be working and came across a Schwinn Paramount touring bike from 1973 with fastback seat stays and internally routed cables.  Was this a case of custom options?  Very nice photos and paint job btw.
