I found this 1973 Schwinn Paramount racing bike at a garage sale north of Seattle. Cleaned it up a bit,stripped it down, converted to fixed and now it is my summer commuter.

I'm hoping one day to stumble upon a gem like this....

nice find!....

I wish I could find ,000+ bikes at garage sales...sigh. I hope you didn't toss all the original parts!

I can't believe...

I can't find and rescue a Paramount from
becoming a fixed gear! Dammit!

Well you know it didn't come

Well you know it didn't come with any wheels, so it seemed like a good candidate to convert to fixed gear. If it had been complete I would have left it as a road bike.


Wow, sounds like you have cool garage sales around Seattle. Nice find.

i have never seen one like this.

what a awsome frame if you should ever wish to dump it let me know.


very classic looking. I like it.

I agree, very sharp looking,

I agree, very sharp looking, love the wheelset.
