1959 B75 P11 ST 23" Black w/first-gen decals Campagnolo Gran Sport/Weinmann 999 "Prop Man" PICTURE Early-'59 w/original first-gen decals. Original finish. Fitted with drop bars; currently being converted back to stock.
1960 D19 P12 23" All-chrome w/red headtube Campagnolo / Weinmann / Stronglight Kevin Kruger PICTURE #1
Mine has a quite unusual red painted headtube, and yes, it is definitely original to the bike. Richard [Schwinn] was surprised to see both a full chrome 1960 P12, plus he said the red painted headtube was very rare indeed.

Attached a few photos of how the bike looked upon purchase. How about that crazy old spiral cable casing wrap! Thank goodness for it as it preserved the original Weinmann gray casing. Had to have the saddle retopped as it was very dried out from lack of attention, resulting in a skirt split that basically left it unable to be ridden.

You won't believe how nice this bike looks now that it is cleaned up. Had very few miles of actual use as evidenced by lack of wear on components and bearing surfaces! Hub locknuts are dated 1959 as well as the cantle plate on the Brooks B17 Competition Standard cantle plate. Headset is standard equipment "AS" stamped model (Campy Record was available as an option along with crankset and seatpost, but sure you already know that).

1960 D91 P12 22" Black w/first-gen decals Nuovo Record/TA Pro 5 Vis/Weinmann L. Solares PICTURE I sold a couple of bikes and this fell on my lap. 1960 Schwinn Paramount, serial # D91. It is on my size so this is a keeper.

I took it to Wastyn Cycles hoping Oscar would let me know if the bike had been made by them but he didn't think so. I did get a cool story of how the pinstriper (I forgot his name right now) would go to the local bar, get a couple of shots of whiskey and go back to the shop to draw this perfect lines.

The decals are original and in great condition. This might have been the last Paramount to leave the factory with those "antique" decals. It was supposedly made for an engineer who used to collaborate with Schwinn. The pinstripes are very nice but very delicate. They have rubbed off in a couple of areas. I might have a hard time cleaning the bike and making the paint shine without damaging the pinstripes.

PICTURE Statement from seller Bicycledreamer:

"When I purchased this bike most of the original group was gone or what was intact did not do the bike justice. One key part that was intact was the very rare, early domed Campagnolo headset. A couple years ago I came across a near mint - near NOS early '62 Paramount, but it was a very small frame and since this '61 chrome was more deserving the group made its way to this bike. The parts are all correct for a '61 save for the front derailleur and non-lipped second edition Campagnolo crankset."

1962 K59 P12 22" All-chrome Campagnolo/Weinmann/Stronglight Lawrence Devereux PICTURE Newly completed restoration on this 1962 P12. Purchased on Ebay. Serial # K59. While speaking with Richard Schwinn about its history and wondering about the chrome finish, apparently this one falls into an area where the records are missing.

In conversation with the Ebay seller, he mentioned that the previous owner said his father rode it through college in New Orleans.

Frame size is 22". The components are the original Gran Sport/Weinmann/Stronglight pieces.

Bought and sold on Ebay, I rode it for about 5 years and could never decide what to do about the scratched up paint with too-cool-to-lose pinstriping. Originally sold by Lee's Cyclery, Ft. Collins, Colo.

1969 M902 P65-9 UNK Chrome Campagnolo NR Mack Cycle PICTURE NFS. Ladies all-chrome Paramount, built in December 1969 - probably a 1970 model.
M906 P13-9/P10-9 UNK Pearlescent Orange Campagnolo NR Michael Flatley PICTURE This is reported to be a 78' P-10. The story is the first owner had a frame failure with his 78' Pearlescent Orange P-10 and was given this painted frame by the factory and assembled by his dealer.

Second owner put Phil Wood BB precision bearing spindle in. I plan to swap out a few group parts with better quality pieces of the same parts, Bar-con shifters and ride it. I will send more pics when I finish it.

SS # is M906 I am told the factory had a stockpile of frames they used for warranty swap outs thus the 69' SS #. I do believe the paint to be factory. Some of the pictures are from the second owner

1970 A7033 P13-9 UNK Refinished - Kool Lemon Campagnolo throughout John Toner PICTURE I own a 1970 Paramount, sn A7033. I bought the frame and fork, sight unseen, on eBay from the vendor "OldSteelMachines". The frame has been beautifully re-painted in Kool Lemon as well as having been re-chromed. The frame appears to be in very good condition, but the vendor failed to properly prepare it after the re-chroming and re-painting. As a result, it was necessary to ream and face the head, ream the seat tube so the seat post would fit, chase the bottom bracket threads, and drill out the brake bolt holes in the fork and brake bridge. The bike has is full Campy except for Ale toe clips and Universal Super 68 brakes (I may replace them with the Super Recs that are on my Ciocc). The stem is Cinelli as are the Campeon Del Mondo bars. The saddle is a new Brooks Pro. All other hardware are either NOS or VGC vintage. Handlebar tape is vintage Tressostar in red.
1970 B7036 P13-9 22" All-chrome Campagnolo/Weinmann Michael Maher PICTURE I am offering to include my 1970 P-13 Paramount in the registry. Although I have owned it for awhile, it is scheduled to go up for sale on eBay. I wanted to offer it for inclusion while it is still in my ownership. For better or worse, it has never looked nicer than right now (at least since new).

It is #B7036, and is a chrome Prugnat-lugged P-13 model in Schwinn's 22" size. All components are either original or period-correct replacements (although some how it ended up with a "no record" rear hub).

While under my ownership it has been cleaned, polished and any inappropriate parts have been replaced. It looks really nice, but it does have a fair amount of peppering to the chrome, especially on the seat tube.

Campagnolo Dennis Nappier PICTURE Purchased as a bare metal frame & matching serial number fork only. Original color Kool Lemon, based upon factory overspray on fork tube. I figured out which model it was and began a five year parts gathering. I had the frame chromed because I always wanted a chrome Paramount.

Upgrades: Phil Wood Hubs, Narrow spaced 6 cog freewheel, and early 80's Campy Rally Rear Deraileur.

1971 H7114 P15-9 ST 24" All-chrome Campagnolo NR + Campag NR brake conversion Michael Larmer PICTURE This is stamped H 71 14, even though the guy who sold it to me thought it was a '73. He worked at the time in a local bike shop and the original owner .......traded it in on something else! The kid I bought it from said he'd had it for several years but never rode it. I guess it is kind of a parade bike. :)

It appears to my unpracticed eye to be pretty much as sold, with the usual exceptions of tires, tape, possibly chain, etc.

1971 J7119 P13-9 UNK Sunset Orange Campagnolo Nuovo Record Bob Young


PICTURE I am the second owner. I bought it in the summer of 1973 from "Stoney", a fellow racer on the Las Vegas Schwinn race team.

In 1971, Stoney purchased a "full Campy" Raleigh Pro from LVS. On the maiden ride home, a car ran a stop sign and he center-punched it, bending the top and down tubes. The following week he ordered the P13 Paramount frameset you see here. Upon delivery, he transferred all the Raleigh Pro hardware to the Paramount frame, including the Brooks Pro saddle. The front wheel had to be rebuilt and this was done using a Weineman wood-core sew-up compatible rim.

After assembling the bike, he rode it once, on a century, in the Las Vegas/Lake Mead area. The following weekend, racing his Paramount tandem, he felt he was beaten by a team that cheated (by holding on to a vehicle) and he quit racing altogether. Nor did he ever ride the P13 again, hanging it up-side down, from his garage rafters.

And that's how I found it.

The only change made to this bike...made shortly after buying it...was re-lacing the wheels with Martano rims (still sew-up), 3x tie & solder lacing in the rear and radial in the front. Otherwise this bike is completely original (well, except for the orange highlighting and the seat cluster pin-striping.

I have often said she's my most prized possession and I will never part with her.

1971 J7157 P13-9 ST 23" Flamboyant Red Campagnolo Nuovo Record Michael Larmer PICTURE This is J7157; apparently not all original, but nonetheless relatively accurate. Brakes, levers and hoods are newer. It is a 23" frame.

1971 M71164 P13-9 NA Flamboyant Red Campagnolo/Weinmann Michael Flatley PICTURE This is a 71' P-10. The story is the original owner lived in Chicago and ordered the bike factory direct (he had a connection). He commuted on the bike for 15-20 years. I am not sure how it got to Washington, I think the second owner brought it out. He rode it as a novelty. SS# is M71164 I am toying with the idea of sending this one to Waterford, but for now it is a nice rider in our crappy weather. It is the most well used in my collection but rides like a dream.

PICTURE This is identical to the bicycle I could not afford when I graduated from Purdue University in 1972 and purchased my first serious bicycle...the best I could afford in 1972 was the Schwinn LeTour at $ 199...which served me very well for nearly 40 years. A former co-worker of mine at RK&K (he is now 89) listed this bike for sale 9 weeks the same price he spent for it on April 7th, 1972.

I have since had the bicycle fully restored by "Chandler" at Race Pace Bicycles on Key Highway, in Baltimore MD...attached is a photo for your records (please crop as you see fit). Chandler used "new original stock" (nos) equipment to the maximum extent possible in this restoration.

My Kool Orange 1972 (J72143) is my pride and joy. I paid the asking price of $250.00 for everything. It included the tool bags and tools, some extra very rare OEM Campy service tools, the matching pair of two Schwinn hard-bound service manuals. Also every piece of documentation and a letter signed by Ignaz Schwinn III.

1972 K7226 P13-9 ST 23" Kool Yellow NA Mark Alan Anderson PICTURE History: Tough to say. I traded for this about a month ago from a fellow in St. Louis. He, in turn, purchased it from someone here in Kansas City a couple of months earlier. Additional Notes: I am confident in my belief that this is probably the original HS and BB, both of which seem to function just fine. Cosmetically, the chrome of the HS is in pretty bad condition. Much of the chrome on the frame lugs is in average condition also and there are many scratches and missing patches of paint on the frame - enough so that I am contemplating a re-spray, something I very seldom do. The craftsmanship of the lugwork is fairly crude in places and not up to the standards I've seen in most other Paramounts - filing and thinning seems pretty journeyman, if you ask me.

1973 D7341 P10-9 24" Silver Campagnolo Nuovo Record Jim Snell PICTURE My 1973 P-13 was acquired at a garage sale on Navaho Drive in West Lafayette Indiana in the summer of 1998 for the huge sum of $350.00. It was leaning against a tree in the front yard. I could hardly control myself when asking if the bike was for sale.. The guy said; "Do you know what that is? I replied that I knew it was a Schwinn racing bike. He said he had purchased it new and only rode it a few times. He said it would take "some serious money" to buy it. I asked him how much and he said "$350.00 not negotiable" I flipped out the cash and loaded in into my van before he got the chance to change his mind. The same year ebay really took off. My last great "pre-ebay" yard sale find! But I forgot to get his name and I don't remember the name of the shop he said he bought the bike from. I do remember he said he ordered it and waited a long time for it. He told me he paid $350.00 new and that was his justification for his asking price of same.

The silver 1973 has became my favorite rider and I put 1000 miles on it in the summer/fall of 2011. Going to slack off of it next summer and ride my vintage all Campy Cannondale. (I really like these Paramounts but they are so pristine originals I feel guilty riding them and also would be very sad if I scratched, crashed, or had one stolen from me... So, am kind of between a rock and a hard place..

1973 F73217 P10 23" Refinished black; was all-chrome Campagnolo Nuovo Record Jim Nusbaum PICTURE This '73 Paramount started life as an all chrome bike but evidently the chrome was in very bad shape as the previous owner had it powder coated all black except for the rear dropouts and head tube lugs. The fork is unfortunately not original but is a Bianchi fork with chrome dropouts. I am on the lookout for an appropriately sized fork with the Nervex crown. See more of this bike at

PICTURE #5 (restored)

Repainted - presumably by Schwinn - between 1975/6 and 1979. Unusual right-to-center-to-left braze-ons added under top tube for rear brake cable. Odd yellowing over finish.

From Glenn: I am only lacking a few items to have a "rolling chassis." Looking for a set of era correct Weinman wood filled tubular rims, but may settle for some Mavic or Fiamme clinchers instead. Almost ready for paint and decals. I plan on riding this bike on Sundays.

PICTURE I sold this bike earlier this year (2011) on eBay. 1973 P60 with serial #73254. It was dealer-modified upon original purchase with upright bars/stem/saddle borrowed from a Schwinn Suburban. From what I was told, this is the first year that the ladies frame was reintroduced after being previously discontinued. I possibly could have originally sold this bike as I worked at the shop it was sold at in my early teens.

1974 D7422 P10-9 21" White Campagnolo/Weinmann Brian McCall NO PICTURE Order # 82853 Sold to: Bushy's Bike Shop.

I do have a provenance report from Waterford.

When I purchased this bike it was equipped with Weinmann centerpull brakes, Campagnolo deraileurs, seatpost, headset,and hubs. It was equipped with tubular tires and regina freewheel and chain. I believe all these things are original to the bike.

1974 D74155 P13-9 24" Silver Campagnolo Nuovo Record Charles Krieger NO PICTURE I have two sets of wheels, hubs and clusters. One set is for sewups/tubulars the other is for clinchers. Paint (Silver) is in very good condition, some damage to the decals on the down tube. I have the original Cinelli tire pump, a set of spare parts, some of the campy tools. I purchased the bike from a neighbor that owned a Schwinn Shop in Southern California (Redondo Beach if I recall correctly). He rode it for a few months and felt the frame was too big for him, so since I am 6’2” I tried it out and bought it in late 1974.

Campagnolo Record Pista Jack Stanley PICTURE I bought this bike used in Raleigh, NC, in 1984 or '85. The seat tube top is about 22" from crank center. It was sold as a 1977, but I believe the serial number indicates it's a 1974. I added the {Weinmann} front brake (the fork was already drilled for it) and replaced the original rims with Campagnolo Victory Crono rims. The hubs and crankset are Campagnolo Pista, The pedals {road}, seatpost and headset are Campagnolo Record. The bars are Cinelli. The stem is alloy, not steel, and I can see "MMEmadeinItaly" stamped on it, but no maker mark as far as I can tell. So, this bike is essentially "All Campy" although not strictly vintage. The bike, although a track bike, is an amazingly smooth ride.

Campus Green Campagnolo Nuovo Record Michael Flatley

Formerly: Dane Rowton

PICTURE This bike was bought from the original owner December 2011. Campus Green was not one of the 11 standard color options for a 1978 Paramount P13. The original owner installed Campagnolo Gran Sport components. All of the components have been changed to Campagnolo Nuovo Record. The wheels are 700C Campagnolo Strada with high flange Campagnolo Nuovo Record hubs and double butted spokes.

According to the provenance report dated April 30, 2012, it was ordered as a Campus Green 23” frameset. Serial No. E7824 was built and shipped in May 1978 to Jerry’s Schwinn Cyclery in Coon Rapids, MN.

1978 F7707 P14 ST 24"
Black N/A Bill Gillooly PICTURE Purchased from Kopp's Cycle in Princeton NJ by a college student road racer with an interest in racing track. Unfortunately college graduation, a career and family got in the way and the bike was probably ridden less than 10 times at Trexlertown Veledrome.

Originally it came with a full Campy pista gruppo, headset, seatpost (26.8mm), cranks (165mm), chainring (46t), bottom-bracket, pedals (chrome-steel), high-flange hubs (with Schwinn counterdrilling) and cog (14t). Oddly enough, it came with a Campy Strada (road) headset. It came with a Cinelli steel pista bars and stem and a Unicanitor saddle. It came with a Schwinn seatpost clamp bolt, not a Campy. The bike also had a spare 50t Campy pista chainring and a 16t Campy track cog. I lost track of what the original rims were, I think they had lost their decals anyway.

The bike was parted out during the summer of 2012 with the frame being purchased by a rider in Brooklyn, NY.

(Waterford repaint)

Campagnolo Athena Mark Anderson PICTURE This is an excellent rider - one of my favorites: it gets in plenty of miles on a regular basis. The frame sticker says it is SLX, but I recall reading in the literature that 60cm and above got SL tubing... sooooo... who knows? Wrong decal after the repaint? Possibly. All I know is that it rides very well in a cross wind. The 80mm stem is really too short for me and this bike size. It's pretty, and it's the one that was installed when the bike came to me, but I am actively looking for a 100 or 110 to replace it. Overall condition of the bike is excellent. There is some very slight distress to the top tube decal and there were two tiny chips in the paint which I have since touched up with the paint Waterford sent to me.
1991 610EMW M91133 True Temper OS 61cm Red/White Campagnolo Athena Michael Webster PICTURE This is and has been for 21 years my old friend. Almost all of the componentry is late 90s era Shimano Ultegra. I recently laced new new rims onto the wheels (HED. Belgium). After all this time I also plan to have the frame repainted this winter, but I'm still deciding on the color, so I'll need to get a new decal set.
