Impromptu photo session on campus, but I've been meaning to post my bike online for a while. I've been riding it with ultra thick "thorn resistant" tubes recently and love how hard the ride is.

I wish I knew more about the history of this frame. I picked it up from a local bike salvage shop and have narrowed down the model to a late 60s/early 70s UO8 type frame---UO8, UE8, AO8. I really wish I had more specificity though (some online sources are contradictory).

Probably UO8

Basically same as an UE8 except without the rack mount. The UE8 came with rack and fenders. The AO8 came before UO8 and UE8. It's a less fancy UO8, without chrome fork legs and quick release high flange hubs.

Thanks for the info.

Turns out my slightly random guess was pretty close.
