Now then, I've got a Jack Taylor Tandem with 531 Tourist butted tubing in need of some TLC. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Preferably in the North?

second one looks like torque loading across the braze, the base braze looks ok from the picture. Peel the paint and filler off and see if the frame is actually damaged.
first, ah bugger, at least it's in the thicker butting of the frame. I have no recommendation for repairs these days, Dave Hinde stopped doing it and starting selling plastic bikes :(.

I had a Mercian fillet brazed tandem from the early eighties, they are still building frames and doing repairs so maybe worth giving them a call.

Ellis Briggs 🤔
I’m not sure but I don’t think they do anything themselves anymore, for a long time they used Bob Jackson but of course that ship has sailed.

I think Chris Marshall is still working from Bingley. PM me if you would like the 'phone number that I have for him.
