Product Description

Frame: 1988 Schwinn Paramount 50th Anniversary Limited Edition.

Color: 50th Anniversary Limited Edition colors, black gloss with fine metallic flake and 24k gold fork. Paint is original.

Serial: WF 88027 also stamped 144

Brake type: Center-Mount rim brake.

Size: Stamped with 580c under the bottom bracket which refers to the 580mm seat tube length. Actual measurements taken by hand are approximate and are as follows: 565mm actual top tube center to center. 565mm center of bottom bracket to center of top tube. 580mm center of bottom bracket to top of seat tube. Head tube 151mm. 415mm chainstay length. If other measurements or take-offs are needed, please feel free to ask. 

Condition: This frame is in mint condition. CyclingUpgrades acquired this frame from the 2nd owner who never built or rode the frame. The 1st owner built the frame and may or may not have ridden it. The frame has signs of being built previously such as light marks on the rear brake bridge from mounting a brake caliper, light grease and cable rub within the integrated cable guide under the bottom bracket, and light clamp marks in the dropouts from mounting wheels. There are no signs of road use which typically include small rock chips under the down tube, chain slap and tire rub on the chainstays, cable rub on the head tube, heel rub on the chainstays, etc. The condition of this frame is similar to a "new tear-down" item. The cosmetic imperfections to highlight include: some light scratches on the top tube from shipping and handling shown in pic #11. Light wear in the rear dropout from mount and dismounting the rear wheel shown in pic #12. We have attempted to show all noticeable imperfections in specific close-up pictures, however other minor imperfections and light signs of use may exist.

Groupset compatibility:  Frame can be setup for eTap or mechanical groupsets. This frame is not compatible with Di2, or EPS setups. Mechanical cable guide below the bottom bracket intact. 

Bottom bracket: English threaded bottom bracket shell type. No bottom bracket currently installed. We have a handful of lightly used basic bottom brackets on hand, let us know what you need and we can try to ship the frame with the right bottom bracket installed. Additionally, CyclingUpgrades is a Wheels Manufacturing, and a Ceramicspeed Authorized Dealer, if you prefer to have the frame setup with a certain Wheels Manufacturing, or Ceramicspeed bottom bracket we can add and install it at an additional cost before shipping - message with inquiries/requests. 

Steerer length: N/A - this frame/fork uses a quill style stem.

Seatpost: 27.2mm. No seatpost included.

Dropout Spacing: QR x 100mm front, QR x 127mm rear.

Weight: 2912 grams as pictured with frame hardware, etc. 

What's included: Frame, and fork. A plastic temporary headset has been put on the frame for pictures, but is not included.
