Extreme Original Schwinn Paramount P15 Sport Touring Bicycle with Brooks Professional, Toolkit and Original Tires
I bought this bike from a friend that is a noted Porsche engine builder/restorer. He has owned it since the mid-70s. The best man at his wedding was the customer relations manager for Schwinn at the time. The story goes, and I have no documentation to this fact, that the bike was Ernie Schwinn's personal bike and more fork rake than standard.
The serial number is K72189, which I believe puts this bike at November of 1972. The 189th bike - which tells you what a grail this was for Schwinn at the time.
Highly original condition with original tires and tools.
We cleaned it up a little but still needs a robust cleaning. Should be disassembled, clean and reassembled.
