Working on those pics of my Paramount tonight after work. Sorry for the delay. Too much work this week.

I am working on compiling as much information as possible including pics. I will try to get that up within the next day. Thanks for commenting. I really want it to go to an owner that will appreciate it. I am an avid bicycle/bicycle history lover and its a cool bike to own. Just now time for me to pass it on. Be back with more information.

It will be my first time doing the Swedish ride, I hear there is only 1 stop light. Mon night ride might be tough to get to. What about weekend rides? Any groups you would recommend?

I have never done any CCC rides. How far and how fast do they go? What route do they take? I ride mostly northshore routes. Im also doing the Insane Terrain Ride next month. This will be my first time doing the Swedish Days Ride. Have you done this before? What's your take on it?

Are you doing the Swedish Days Ride? I am....doing the 100mile route.
