Friend of the shop's recent find 1962 Schwinn Paramount

     This bike belongs to a friend of the shop / long time client. He brought it by to show us. It is a 1962 Schwinn Paramount P-12, which was the road racing model. The bike is in as found condition. It has the original lug lining and the super cool "Disney font" downtube decals. Original paint as well. Notable features are the MAFAC TOP 63 brakes, and the first generation Campagnolo front derailleur. This bike also has the mostly complete Campagnolo Record upgrade  options. This crank set was only available for about 4 years at this point. Enjoy the photos!
