  1. This is a 1972 Paramount P-15 (#L7266).

    I built up a set of 700C clincher wheels (using matching Campy HF hubs) to use instead of the vintage Weinmann straight-sided clincher rims. Unfortunately, I had to replace the Campy Record brakes (not enough reach for 700C rims) with Weinmann Centerpulls.

    Not to worry–the original Campy brakes are safely stored 🙂

    The bike is a dream to ride…
