Man, that thing has it all, including leather saddles ,very nice !
I checked the bike forums rule book, and it says it counts as N+2 , because there are 2 saddles. Therefore, no more buying until Feb. 1

Just one bike, so it's N+1. It looks great, but rotate those handlebars forward before you put someone's eye out. ;)
That is indeed a single tandem bike. N + 1. The stoker bars are quite high but whatever works for the stoker is fine by me. Agree some forward rotation would be appropriate.

Personally, I would take the handlebar tape off the front handlebars. Re-position the brifters and handlebars then re wrap the handlebar. But then, I can make any job more difficult.

Great acquisition. I hope you have as much fun on your tandem as we have had on ours. There's just no funner way to ride than on a tandem with someone who's company you enjoy.

Oh Boy--Do you realise what you have let yourself in for? Lots of pain while adjusting. Tandems don't go round corners- Brakes don't work- definitely don't go uphill but are the most fantastic fun you will ever have on two wheels.
Don't believe me? Come back at the end of the Summer and let us know how much fun you are having.
I'll let you know stapfam! :)

Sweet bike Ludkeh, excellent looking tandem, I hope you and your stoker get a lot of enjoyment from it.
