hey there, i found an 82 year old guy with a pretty interesting bike. it's a 1930 Schwinn Paramount track bike. im supposed to check it out next week. he says the SN is 18 and it's chrome plated. now, the price he's asking sounds steep to me. $4000 :eek: . what are your impressions of that price? i've never seen a Paramount that old so i dont know if thats out of line.

Info

Some old, chrome, Paramounts go for big $. Driving the price are condition, originality (of all components), size, and the right buyer.

The 50th anniversary of Paramount was in '88, so I think '38 would be as old as it can get. But what's 8 years. Price would depend on condition. Certainly could be worth that much. - TF
