Offering a truly stunning, handmade filet-brazed steel touring tandem frameset with a load of enticing extras. The name of its maker has been lost and so we are reduced to going by what appears before our eyes: can you handle it?.

Please study the images: they say it all and the only slight downside here is some heavy paint chipping along the driveside chainstay and small amounts elsewhere. Craftsmanship is undeniablly and consistently fine. Attention to detail, impressive if not mind-boggling. Will build into a responsive yet bombproof touring machine the kind you ride around the world, and a buyer is given a head-start here with the many included components listed below.

SIZE: Captain BB center to top tube center: 54cm; stoker, 49cm. NOTE: that each seat tube extends a good 2" above the top tube and should be considered when assessing the measures given here. Consequently, I went ahead and listed the actual size as about 58cm (thinking of the Captain's place). Weight of all shown: 17.88 lbs. Rear spacing measured out at 143mm.

FEATURES & EXTRAS: Campagnolo dropouts fore & aft; Campy seatpost binder hardware, likewise; Galli headset; matching, fluted Sugino seat posts; Nitto Stoker stem; SunTour front derailleur (unidentified); matching cartridge bearing bottom brackets; heavy duty 6mm braze-ons fore & aft plus many regular ones for 5mm; set of 4 matching water bottle cages plus braze-ons for a fifth, Multiple braze-ons including an especially lovely one for the rear brake q-r housing stop.

Thanks for viewing. Price firm. Your questions are welcome. Offers, not so much and will not be acknowledged.

Must see in person to fully appreciate. Undoubtedly one of the outstanding touring tandem framesets available anywhere.
