    Thank you "Cycle-mad"... Today we picked up a project. It came in a big box of parts... we don't know how much is missing (other than the obvious things like chainset, saddles, quill and rear handlebars) your picture really helped. At least I know where the parts go now. :-)

    srw It's a bit more complicated than that...

    Is that really a bolt-together tandem frame?

    Yes, it is bolted together, but not for dissembling, it is just the construction method used. It is surprisingly stiff... but heavy! but considering the age that is not unusual.

    We have just got it bolted together now, we had fun finding out which bolt when in which hole.

    I assume that eccentric bottom bracket must be for tightening the chain?

    Yes - now that is part of a normal tandem!
