A rare find: This tandem has seen very little use from it's first outing in the 1970's. We've left it JUST AS IT IS as a restoration project.
Particular note should be made to the frame design, it's a USB (Ultra Short Wheelbase) like the old Claud Butlers from decades before, the rear seat tube is curved to allow the rear wheel to tuck in behind the rear bottom bracket.
As a result the the front mech (unlike most tandems) is located at the front riders pedals, this affords the pilot to see the shift and facilitates a straighter chain line. There is a front eccentric but also an idler wheel for the connecting chain.
Mafac cantilever brakes plus an Atom rear drum brake, 40 spoke alloy 700c rims, Simplex friction gears, alloy micro adjust seat posts.
