Fantasy Footbikes: Schwinn Paramount

Paramount Fantasy Footbike

Today’s Fantasy Footbike is based on one of the finest classic American bicycles – the Schwinn Paramount. Robert Clair’s 1939 track bike was used as the model, with a (later) vintage Gran Compe aerodynamic brake installed (no backpedaling a footbike!) and because of the brake, the original wooden rims were replaced with alloy.
