1988 Schwinn Paramount 50th Anniversary Ltd. Edition From issue 3 • Images by Russ Lamoureux

Called the 50/50 bike, the Schwinn Paramount 50th Anniversary Limited Edition (only 600 were built at the Waterford plant) was created to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Paramount model from Schwinn and came with a 24-karat gold-plated fork, gold decals, a velour pouch to protect the fork and a 50th Anniversary certificate. The other half of the “50” is represented by a 50th Anniversary Campagnolo Super Record group, complete with a Campagnolo Bio-Dynamic bottle. A vintage Brooks saddle completes the package. (From the collection of Hrach Gevrikyan of Velo Pasadena.)
