Whats the verdict on this ? For sale locally.
One of the best of the production tandems of that era. Looks as though it could do with a tidy-up.
Have you got a 'stoker' in mind.
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 - !
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?
I thought it looked like a disc on the rear wheel and a lever for it on the 'stokers' handlebar.
Nope not at the moment, just liked the look of the bike
Dunno what is a good price for a tandem of this sort ?
Here you go
Arai drum. Much sought after.
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!
I will bear that in mind, there is someone going to look at it ahead of me but fingers crossed
go for it as a tandem ride will change your life
