Webmaster's Newly Restored 1972 UE-8
I acquired this touring pug from Karen Birkedal in 2007.  She was the original owner and purchased the bike in Terrace, British Columbia during the early 1970s 10-speed craze in Canada.  Karen would have bought the bike in North Bend Oregon, where she lived, but the waiting list was too long at the local Schwinn dealership.  Karen commuted on this bike while going to school at the University of Oregon.  The bike was well preserved because it was stored in her garage since that era.  Parts that were substituted over the years included an SR handlebar stem, Suntour SL front derailleur and T.D. Cross Freewheel.  In addition, the corner of one pedal was welded to repair a break and a rear light lens was missing.  I replaced these parts with original issue Pivo handlebar stem, Simplex Prestige 637 front derailleur, Atom 14-26 freewheel, and New Old Stock Lyotard 36 pedals, and also replaced the spoke protector.  However, I used a 100 mm instead of the standard 80 mm handlebar stem, a United 300 mm unicycle seatpost, Michelin World Tour tires; and I slightly upgraded the ADGA 28A to an Ideale 39 saddle, to get the geometry and comfort that I desired.  I completely disassembled the bike and rebuilt it using Phil Wood's grease to repack the bearings, LPS3 Premier Rust Inhibitor to treat the inside of the frame, an accordian-style bottom bracket sleeve, vintage Schwinn cables and housing, Pedros Bike Lust, and Menotomy Mixture Cleaning Oil.

Matt MacIntosh's Excellent Trash Find
Matt pulled this UE8 from the trash in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia.  He originally brought it home for parts, but decided to fix it up.  The bike was missing tires, pump and rear derailleur.  Not bad for two days work!

Webmaster's 1975 UE-8 Upgraded ("PX-10'd") Commuter
This 1975 UE8 was purchased in the summer of 2007 from Jeffrey Lucaszeski, an avid vintage bicycle collector in the Suffolk, Virginia area.  Jeff repainted some tubes on the frame working around the decals and using the rattle-can method after some touch-up sanding and priming.  His paint selection of Dupli-Color Auto Spray, GM338X/B1335/SF is a pretty good match.  I have since replaced most of the steel parts with high-end late 1970s and early 1980s components.  The new specifications are:  TA 123.5 mm bottom bracket spindle, Stronglight 99 triple-bis crankset (52/46/36), Simplex SLJ 523 triple front derailleur, Simplex seat tube derailleur cable guide, Gipiemme/Simplex SLJ 5500 rear derailleur, Atom 77 5-speed (14-28T), Huret spoke protector, Simplex Criterium shifters, Atax "Guidons Philippe” Professionnel handlebars, Atax “Peugeot” professional stem, Mafac drilled brake levers, Ideale 2001 racing saddle, Kalloy 25.6 mm seatpost, 27” x 1-1/4” Wienmann concave rims (Belgium), Maillard Peugeot "trophy" Professional Team hubs, Continental Ultra-Sport tires, Kool Stop brake pads, Lyotard 46D pedals with Christophe toe clips, Soubitez SP L23 front fender light, and REG water bottle cage (Italy).  This 2007/2008 winter project was my first attempt at an upgrade, and I may have gotten a little carried away.  Overkill is the term that comes to mind, but a sweet ride nonetheless!
