I'm still toying around with the Match/Schwinn Paramount. I'm waiting a few weeks for the enamel touch-ups to dry before I pull out the wax. I've got most of the parts now for a Campy Chorus/Centaur build... minus the wheels. I'll post pics as soon as it's rideable. Oh, and I opened a chainlink acct. :) I hope you are enjoying the fantastic weather today!
