its an early one and looks a sweet one too.
i have dealt with him on ebay previously and found him to be honest and professional as well as an enthusiast.
looks to be a bit big for ahimsa but maybe he could give us first hand report :-)

|Hmmm...After looking at that frame I am wondering if I could add the outlining of the lugs to my chromie?|

|So that's a 60-61?
Yep, too big. Tempting, but I wouldn't dream of bothering with a too big frame.
Now if'n a 56-58 shows up......
Do those Paramounts have 27 inchers on 'em? I hate the whole rim/tire selection problem w/ 27's.
May have to hold out for chrome & 700c. Fat chance?

|im no expert .... but this is how i see it
all paramounts if ordered as bikes came with tubulars (as was any high end race bike) (700c - as was any high end race bike) and if you wanted clinchers (27" - an then considered inferior) you had to order it as such.
there is clearance for both as its only an 8mm diameter overall difference (meaning that with clinchers - 27" the brakes would be set higher by 4mm).
for that era brakes would have been standard reach (49-59 mm) so there is no problem with using them but its getting harder to find both good 27" rims and period standard reach brakes in NOS condition. i would dread at putting modern shimano calipers on a frame with such classic beauty.
of course i may be wrong :-)

|The chrome track bike. Very nice indeed.
I am merely in "looking" mode right now.
I'm sure when the money is in my hand I'll find a suitable frame, but for now i have other monetary obligations and even a few bike projects ahead of my "retro chrome fixe speedster".
