This frame was in almost mint condition and has been fully restored with new decals. It has Campy Centaur gears, front brake and brake levers, Euclid U-brakes, Phil hubs and captain BB, Cook Bros. tandem cranks and stoker BB spindle, Salsa stems, QRs and chainrings, IRD seatposts, Brooks seats, Ritchey handlebars, Velocity Aeroheat 40h rims, Wheelsmith spokes, Specialized tires and cages and non-period correct Time Gripper pedals. The color was called candy apple red and had a beautiful shine in sunlight. It rides like a dream: extremely stable and lots of fun! More here:

That is Super-sweet. Top-notch bits too. My mechanic friend owned a single & swore by Fat Chance. Didn't even know that they made a tandem though.

That is an amazing machine.

Two U-brakes on the back wheel? Never seen that before...

Fantastic, loving the double U brake action and Cooks tandem cranks.
