I have come across an original 50th Anniversary Paramount (Columbus tubing) in a medium blue color. This frame/bike also has a Columbus fork. It has complete 7spd. mint Dura-Ace componetry, Shimano pedals (Look-type, not spd!), white bar tape, white saddle. I would love to buy the bike, it is probably too big. I haven't measured, but I'm thinking it's in the 59/60+ size range. It has less than 300 miles on it! It still has the sprigs on the tires, and no wear on the cogs, chainwheels, or chain. Any information, or realistic appraisal would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance! Swanee

If it has the 50th anniversary stickers on it, it's an '88 (not an '85). You can confirm this in the serial number.

If you can get it for 500 that would be pretty good for that bike in that condition. If you had to pay more, You might go up to 600, but that would be tops in my book.
