Paramount P-13 60cm 1966

I felt this bike was completely original, however I'm finding that some of the parts have been replaced after all. - not surprising that parts would have gotten worn out and replaced after a couple of seasons of racing. Digging into the bottom bracket this afternoon reveals a Campagnolo 1046/a, Nuovo Record (Strada) 112mm spindle from 1968... in other words, at least eighteen months after the frame was built. The rear derailleur has a 1971 date code. For later reference, the bearings are 11x11 in 1/4", the recommendation is for grade 25.

Although I have the original tubular wheel set in storage, I'm riding the clinchers illustrated here.
