I’m flattered when someone refers to the OTSG as “brilliant”, but what really gets the old ego humming is when they then refer to me as “master” of said brilliance! I would have to say that today’s contributor, Milton V-H, is the true master of brilliance when he’s astride this fetching French goddess of pure beryl and naugahyde!
Dear master of the OTS Gallery,
Thanks for a brilliant site. I’m a frequent browser of the OTS Gallery and since the site has inspired me a lot, I figured I could give a little something back by submitting one of my bikes.
Please find attached a couple of pics of my loyal commuter, Peugeot PH8 from 1983. Sadly it’s not an OTS currently but rather an OFS since the front derailleur got broken a year ago and I haven’t found an orignal replacement yet.
I found the bike from a thrift store a few years back in good condition for 50 euros. Since then I have upgraded the brake levers and the seat. Besides that, the bike is in its original shape and it has taken me to work and back every single day regardless of the often so unpleasant climate here in Finland.
