A note from the original owner:
My wife and I purchased these two matched Paramounts 3/9/1974 for $495 each.
We enjoyed many miles of riding these bikes in our community. We did a single one-week camping trip with our camping gear and stuff. Great memories in the 40+ years we had these bikes! Now it is time for something new, we are enjoying our new recumbent trikes!
Shipping is $95 in the lower 48 states. Bike will be professionally packed and insured, signature required on arrival.
