    Another Schwinn Paramountain?

    Just joined the Form and I am looking to find out if anyone knows of custom painted Schwinn Paramountians. I just purchased this bike and was wondering if anyone has some information as to this custom paint?
    It is a white base with speckled or splattered paint and matching Zefal tire pump.
    The bike was originally purchased from Mountain View Cyclery in San Bernardino, CA
    Any and all info welcome.

    Thanks for the comments as I just had to buy this bike this passed weekend as I was looking for a Hybrid for the wife. I love the paint job and was wondering who might have painted this bike. As there are just generic Schwinn decals on the head and down tube.

    Don't see too many of those around! First, shame on you for not taking a drive side photograph. Second, I'd wager that somebody in the early 90's got a wild hair (or is it hare?) to customize their bike. I highly doubt Schwinn would take the time and effort to match a water bottle cage and pump. That fork is right but chromed??? If you ever pull the head, BB, or seat tube out there may be some original paint spray to be seen. I worked in a Schwinn shop in the mid 90's and we had all sorts of oddball decals leftover and they'd get used every so often for restorations.

    Awesome bike! I just picked up it's sibling, a 1987 Cimarron.
