    One of the best of the production tandems of that era. Looks as though it could do with a tidy-up.

    Nice :becool:

    Have you got a 'stoker' in mind.
     
  4. Fandabbidozi. If the price is halfway decent you should go for it.

    From the piccy, doesn't appear to have a third / drag brake. If it doesn't, will make going downhill loaded interesting when it comes to stopping - ! :eek:

    Looks like it has a hub brake to me. I think I can just about see the torque arm projecting forward?
    Is it normal for the stoker to have a brake lever to play with? :eek:

    I thought it looked like a disc on the rear wheel and a lever for it on the 'stokers' handlebar.

    I recon l could get it for €200 euros but l don't really know what l would do with it if l had it because try as l might l can't enthuse anyone to ride bikes, they all want cars because the hills are "hard work" ! French, what are you like !!

    Drum alone is worth not far short of that iirc.

    If you can buy that for 200 euros, you could make a handsome profit!
