Greetings and Thank you
« on: May 19, 2017, 03:15:28 AM »
Just wanted to say hello and thank you for posting the Schwinn Catalogs, which is how i found your site.

I grew up with Schwinns, and started racing at the age of 12. I worked in a Schwinn shop to pay for my racing expenses, and the owner sold me my first Paramount Track bike when I was 15. I started velodrome racing and doing time trials on my P-14.

Cleaning out the basement preparing for a move I had forgotten I still had the P-14, and after dusting it off it's as beautiful as the day I bought it.

Thank you for providing the information available on this site.
