    Thanks for submitting my bike:)

    The stem is really tall, I don’t know why? it is interesting because it is an original part.

    Wheels are 27″ it was very popular size in Europe, now more popular is 28″, did You ever seen a bike with 27 inches wheels in US?

    These twin-top-tube looks greate for me, what do You think about?

    That is the tallest stem I’ve ever seen!:)

    27″ wheels were very popular in the US throughout the 1970s but were then abandon in favor of 700c wheels. The bikes you will see on here are probably 60% 27″ and 40% 700c split. Here in the US the current “bike boom” has lead to a renaissance of the 27″ wheel and several tire manufacturers have brought the size back into production.

    I love the twin top-tubes. How does it ride?

    Thanks for sharing. We’d all love to see more bikes from Poland, so tell your friends!

    Thanks for info about 27″ wheels in the US. I always thought it was popular in central and eastern Europe. Every Bianchis or Peugeots I’ve seen was on 28″.

    My bike is not so much confortable on polish roads, there is so many holes… That is the reason why MTB bikes are so populary here:D

    When i find some good road, the bike rides very well but must find parts to upgrade it to ten speed bike.

    I’ll try to induce my friends to submitting their photos.

    Ps. When I done the restoration, would I update or add photos?

    Greetings from Poland:)

    I love it! What a beautiful bike! I have an old 3-speed Hawthorne/Hercules with twin top tubes as well. My only regret is that it is too small for me, and after I fix it up I will probably sell it.

    That is way cool. I have never seen twin tubes on a traditional mans frame.I gotta find me one of those.It has been so cool watching OSTG just grow into an international thing.I never knew there was this many of us out there. Way to go Cameron!
