Artguywes has sent us this Schwinn Paramount flea market special. Old and crappy never looked so good! Even in this condition this baby demands respect. There is a difference between wear and neglect, and this OTS is blessed with aesthetic wear. I say clean her, wax her and love her as she is. But if you insist on repainting her, at least treat her right.

1965 Schwinn / Waterford Paramount Deluxe
This one I found yesterday at the flea market. A real sleeper. Rusty, faded and dirty. Outfitted with vintage campagnolo parts and a molded japanese seat. no bar tape and a TTT Stem. Vintage Dura Ace crank and MKS Quill Pedals. I may repaint it, but I’m also tempted to neutralize the rust and clearcoat over the existing wear. Sometimes a repaint can kill the character. – Wes
