I picked this up this last week. Super clean and looks to have been used very little. Lots of cool details, Fully fillet brazed frame, fork and bar/stems, color matched bullseye cranks, dual rear brakes... I think even the tires are original. Parts are all M732 vintage. Campy rear seatpost and Sakae front, not sure what was going on there. Down tube and boom tube are ovalized as is the section of the top tube where the captain seat tube pierces it. The paint is hard to photo well, but in the right light it is super bright.

Nice. So ... how does it wheelie? :lol:

I always liked tandems. Dunno why really, I always ride alone so I really have no use for one.

I asked The Guv'nor and he said he usually puts the vote up around the 20th so you've got plenty of time...

I can't see it, the subtle paintwork just blends into the background. :wink:

Seriously though, that's excellent. I love the matching cranks.
