High end American bike frame in extra large size. Hand built, gorgeous silver brazed Nervex lugs, matching serial number frame and fork. Vintage steel at its finest.

Here's a brief history of the Schwinn Paramount:

30,000 takes it. I live in Misawa Air Force base, Aomori-Ken. Paypal would be the easiest way. If you know somebody in the U.S. military I can ship for free to their APO address.

Not really - I recognize the lugs - but --- what exact geometry? Most Waterfords were semi-custom and not really bulked into 'compact' geometry. I rode Paramounts since 1972 so not such a newbie on this...

the seat tube is 63cm, the top tube is about 59.5, both measurements center-to-center. At the time you could order a custom made paramount so the actual geometry can indeed be different from the production model.

This model is pre-Waterford era. Serial number J7905

My commuter/credit card tourer is a 1969 model. Super comfy, lax geometry, enough clearance for fenders but not much beyond that (27" tires). Compared to a tourer doesn't like to be overloaded but handles beautifully on fast downhills.
