I'm guessing this is a UO18 from the early 70s. Seems to be all original and in very nice shape. Just a few scrapes on the right seat stay. Any info appreciated.

spots to check for date marks

a) back side of rear derailleur

b) underside of front derailleur

c) diamond marking on Rigida SUPERCHROMIX wheel rims

That's in beautiful shape! The graphics suggest early 1970s to me. The hubs may have a date stamped in them. The handlebar may as well, under the wrapping.

This is my 1970 model. I'm calling it a 1970 because the handlebar had "12 69" stamped on it and I think I found a correlating date code somewhere else on it as well. Notice the downtube graphics and how they use the "arrowhead" end style, with a longer gold line sandwiched between two white lines. Yours has the "slash" end style, where all lines appear cut-off at an angle. I think these graphics started in the early 1970s.

The Rigida rims show a 1975 date stamp.

I have already upgraded it with 700c rims. A few other mods and it should be a super rider.

Yeah, they are a bit sketchy on the early 70s. I'm guessing this is a 75. Thanks!

Wow! That is in gorgeous condition. Can't say the same for my 1970 UO-8 and (now my son's) 1980 PKN-10, but they have been well-used and have serve well over the years.

The Brochures start in 74 but the Flyers go back to the 60s I think there is less to them because there weren't importing their full line up during that time

A little update. My wife claimed this one, so I upgraded with alloy 700c rims, new tires, new saddle, alloy bars and stem, new cables and a rear rack, Might need to replace the Simplex derailleurs, but right now they function perfectly.
