1992 Paramount Series 90 PDG

“Imperfectly perfect” best describes our 1992 Paramount restoration/preservation build.

This bike is a unique piece of cycling history, created by Schwinn Bikes, marketed as Paramount, and built by Panasonic. Assembled with an eclectic array of era-correct components and anodized extras, this Tange steel 1992 Paramount Series 90 PDG embodies everything we love about vintage bikes.

The original Paramount catalogue from 1992 describes the Series 90 as…“Every detail just so. Massaged till it purrs. Then tweaked, tuned, and dialed till it screams.”

We hope this bike brings back some great memories and inspires you to begin a preservation project of your own.
