We've been threatening to get a tandem for a while to involve my wife in my passion for cycling. This tandem came up locally at a very reasonable price, complete and in running order. The retrobike in me is very curious as to what make model it is. Unlike the running gear the frame appears quite old looking at the mudguard mounts and headset. Can you help me please identify it please.

Classic 33 please see below. I've had a look at images on the net and it seems possible that it's a Claud Butler but I've not seen an exact match. Thanks for your response.

Could be a Sun. There were many tandem marques back in the day, I've even seen one branded 'Co-op'. It might have over-sized, obsolete bottom-brackets, and I'm not sure about the availability of Brampton headset spares. Tandem Club is your best resource.
 
Is there a number stamped into the top rear seat tube lug ?

I was just looking for Saxon tandems . Although they seemed to have the stepped end to the rear seat stay several of them seem to have a strange seat tube . Either twin tubes or curved to follow the shape of the rear wheel .
