Here's a great picture showing a 1972 Schwinn P15-9 Paramount (inner bike) next to a Waterford fabricated 953 Stainless steel bike. For most, they might look like the same thing. The fact is, these two bikes are separated by almost 3 decades in time and technology.
Steel has come a long way. The 953 is stainless, stronger, and six pounds lighter than the '72 Schwinn yet retaining all the great qualities of a steel ride.
