A former member of my two-wheeler collection (sold in October 2002)
1988 50th Anniversary Schwinn Paramount - ALL CAMPAGNOLO EQUIPPED - "Black Sparkle"
Columbus SLX frame & forks w/Shimano dropouts and 24 carat gold plated forks (only 600 of these were built), full Campagnolo Super Record Gruppo (except wheel hubs - they are "C-Record"), Brooks Colt leather saddle, Cinelli handlebars & stem. I purchased the frame still new in the box in 2000 and meticulously collected all the parts for several months before finally assembling this beautiful, limited-edition classic. Almost all of the parts are either NOS (New Old Stock) or were "take-offs" from a new bike that was never ridden (new for all practical purposes). The only exceptions are the seatpost and the front derailleur! A mint example of the Schwinn Waterford, WI Paramount facility's (now Waterford Precision Cycles) finest craftsmanship during their Schwinn heyday.
"Still a new, unridden classic!"
I HAVE SOLD THIS BICYCLE. Thanks for everything, Donna! Enjoy!
