I'm pretty sure I bent the threaded portion with the press a few times. But my memory is hazy.

Very nice. It would be a UO-8 if it didn't have those spiffy fenders and rack. What kind of stem does it have? Some of them have brittle stems, and if you have one, you should replace it. I have a French-diameter stem if you're interested.

This is a 74-76 UE 8... the AO8 looks very similar but does not have integrated lights... and it should have a front light as well.

These are a rather solid and nice riding bicycle and with a few little upgrades they get much better, my nephew rides a UE8 that I upgraded with alloy wheels and Suntour deraileurs which are a big improvement over the Simplex.

His... before the deraileur swap.

I have a UO-10 that I bought new in 1978 that looks alot like yours.
The crank looks different, otherwise it's a match.

Yes... if the stems says AVA it needs to be swapped as these are prone to breakage under hard riding.

The neffer's bike got a new stem as it had an AVA and alloy bars too.

The UO-10 had aluminum rims, derailleurs, and crank. It had the same frame as the UO-8 and UO-9.
