1982 Schwinn Superior

This 2nd tier Schwinn has eluded me for decades.It is the perfect complement to my 2nd tier Volare.Both have interesting history and both were limited in years of production in small numbers.

Frame:
63 cm CtC Nervex lugged Reynolds 531 DB.Campagnolo drops

Fork/Headset:
Tange steerer and drops.531 blades / Campagnolo Gran Sport

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Campagnolo Gran Sport 170mm 42-52 / Campagnolo Gran Sport BSC

Pedals:
Color matching Shimano Dura-Ace 7401's substituting for the Campagnolo Gran Sport with clips.

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Regina ORO 13 x 24- 5 speed / Campagnolo 42 x 52 / Sedisport gold

Derailleurs/Shifters:
Campagnolo Gran Sport with Gran Sport levers

Handlebars/Stem:
SR Royal bars and stem too short and narrow.ITM / Nitto puts things right

Saddle/Seatpost:
Ariake Road King / Campagnolo Gran Sport

Brakes:
Campagnolo Gran Sport

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Super Champion Gentleman / Campagnolo Gran Sport / IRC Road Winner Duro II 700 x 28

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Super Champion Gentleman / Campagnolo Gran Sport / IRC Road Winner Duro II 700 x 28

More Info:
Made from left-over Paramount frame components after Schwinn's decision to re-think the Paramount's future.Except for the saddle,I purchased it in completely original condition.I've only ever seen one other example of this fine machine.

Thank You ,
Other than the bars and stem, the aero levers and pedals are the only changes made and that only to make it more user friendly
