I love this bike and will be sad to see it go, but I’m moving house in March and need to slim down the collection. It makes for a great light tourer / relaxed all day (and night) rider. Would also be a nice ride for Eroica.

1979 Schwinn Paramount p15, 63.5cm seat tube, 59 cm top tube

The original fork has a bent crown. No idea how it happened. It was like that when I got it. Replaced it with a custom fork from Tsunesaburo in Chiba. The new fork doesn’t have the lovely Nervex crown and Campy dropouts, but, hey, it works! I can include the original fork if you want to get it straightened out.

60,000 yen is my offer, not budging from that... unless you want the frame only. I would much rather sell the bike whole, though. Pick up in Kisarazu only.
