Someone needs to give this bike a good home before I do! Really awesome classic American road bike from the tail end of the second generation of the model. Full chrome plating on the frame and forks. The plating is wearing thin (dull) in certain areas on the frame, tough to photograph, mainly the seat cluster / top of the seat tube and seat stays. Original Schwinn Paramount head badge. Red lug lining, no decals. Serial number is Y39 which dates it to the tail end of 1965. Seat tube is 60CM center to center. Top tube is 59CM center to center. Stand over height is 34″ (with air in the tires). Frame has eyelets brazed on at the drop outs (common at this time), cable stops for the rear brake cable, and cable stop for the rear derailleur housing.

I test rode this bike and it feels great, exactly how i like a road bike to feel. springy with really quick acceleration and great handling. Like I said, someone give it a good home before I do. It fits like a glove!
