You guys do know they sell tires made within the past 15 years that fit 27" wheels, right? These bikes are beautiful and then I notice tires, I wouldn't feel comfortable putting 15 lbs worth of stuff on, no less, me plus 60.

Edit: Comment not really made for last 2 posts. (Those are some nice rides)

I think most of them are "as found" I hope. My Santana still wears the rotted tires it came with until I get another set of Panaracers.

I never thought of a tandem as a touring bike before. Is it in fact a touring intended bike? Seems to me one issue with touring is fitting enough luggage on board. With a tandem you haven't really increased the luggage volume capacity over that of a single, while admittedly you may have marginally increased the per capita luggage weight capacity. Next issue is durability. Two fairly svelte riders plus full touring gear must be ~400lb; are there wheels and drivetrains engineered for this load over the long distance? Third, brakes! Fourth, being a stoker and "touring" don't really seem to go together, do they?
This is just my curiosity, not criticism, per se!

My Gran Turismo, Getting a little worn in the paint, but five some odd thousand miles does that to a bike. I like to show up to road rides that I overnighted to, unload a couple bags and drop the stem. Still get dropped pretty fast, but the amount or riders older than me(37)that have never seen a quill amazes me.

I've known tandemers who tour. I built a rear wheel for one. So yes, some do it. I guess they can't pack much stuff unless they tow a trailer.

chromed right chainstay left unpainted, JUST like the 86 model Fuji Sundance MTB's?
Just my theory?,,,,BD

Headed to the fuji catalog site now to prove myself wrong,

It appears to have the same crank, the angles of the frame seem right, and the same type of rear brake hoop. The chromed stay is the kicker though?

I've got a touring tandem? 18 speed(triple), Suntour self energizing canti's and a hub brake, 48 spoke wheels, rear rack, etc. No front bag mount though. I am glad though, since that thing is a beast to get moving. I can't imagine the added weight of a loaded bag on the bars, lol.,,,,BD

We specialize in building touring tandems here... no trailer is required for most expeditions.

If they're stock, most likely CTA's. Peugeot used that brand almost exclusively on their 80's road bikes, especially when the stem is that brand which it looks to be.,,,,BD
