Vintage schwinn dating Filipina live chat
A couple years ago I came across a near mint - near NOS early '62 Paramount, but it was a very small frame and since this '61 chrome was more deserving the group made its way to this bike. While speaking with Richard Schwinn about its history and wondering about the chrome finish, apparently this one falls into an area where the records are missing.The parts are all correct for a '61 save for the front derailleur and non-lipped second edition Campagnolo crankset."Newly completed restoration on this 1962 P12. In conversation with the Ebay seller, he mentioned that the previous owner said his father rode it through college in New Orleans. The components are the original Gran Sport/Weinmann/Stronglight pieces. The story is the first owner had a frame failure with his 78' Pearlescent Orange P-10 and was given this painted frame by the factory and assembled by his dealer.It looks really nice, but it does have a fair amount of peppering to the chrome, especially on the seat tube.Purchased as a bare metal frame & matching serial number fork only.This tool searches a database of Schwinn serial numbers and if it finds a match to your serial number then it will display the information available for your bike.Notes: This tool works for Schwinn bikes from 1948 to 1982.
If you would like to be added to the list, please email us with your name and the serial number of your Paramount or Superior.Richard [Schwinn] was surprised to see both a full chrome 1960 P12, plus he said the red painted headtube was very rare indeed.Attached a few photos of how the bike looked upon purchase. Thank goodness for it as it preserved the original Weinmann gray casing.The bike has is full Campy except for Ale toe clips and Universal Super 68 brakes (I may replace them with the Super Recs that are on my Ciocc). Although I have owned it for awhile, it is scheduled to go up for sale on e Bay.The stem is Cinelli as are the Campeon Del Mondo bars. I wanted to offer it for inclusion while it is still in my ownership.
