I owe a big debt of thanks to those here at the Cabe who helped with sourcing the missing parts.
Thank's, guys!

Reynolds tubing was made of Manganese & Molybdenum.
The Paramount tubing was made of Chromium & Molybdenum.
Here's an article from the American Bicyclist that was first published in April 1938 for the introduction of the Paramount line.

Thanks for the article. I'm more familiar with the later Nervex lugged Paramounts... I don't know much about the early years. Amazing the Racer model weighed only 20 lbs in 1938!

Great job Marty !
Those fenders makes it complete.
I’m glad it went to a good home instead of the Goodwill.
I’ll let Charlie see the results !

Here are my favorite before pics.
I liked the original owner bars, comfy saddle and that “groovy” front tire.

Thanks to you, Sarmis.
I really appreciate the opportunity that you provided me, to have the chance to experience the 1938/39 Sports Tourist model Schwinn Paramount.
As I was wheeling the bike out to the truck, Charlie asked me if I planned to ride the bike?
I shook his hand and said, absolutely!

Wore out three sets of tires already!
A sweet bicycle! Great job bringing this beauty back to life. I love this model and the Schwinn New Worlds of that vintage.
