ferrari tandem?

I went to pick up a buddy to go fishing and his neighbor had this tandem frame and fork leaning up against the house. Dude was in his yard admiring his motorcycle and I asked him about the bike. it hasnt rained since then, but his girlfriend came out and was wanting some beer for it. We also had a huge snow winter, so I asked if it was out all winter and she said no.
Should I pick up a six pack and go over and get it? It is a Ferrari, decals look like the car ones. I thought like a GMC bike....
it will require a lot of work.

Price of a six pack can't be that bad for any tandem - even if you'll have to strip it for parts when all is said and done. Get it, and post pics.

If I could only aquire money, not even that much, with the proficiency that I have been aquiring bikes, I could get the V12.
I actually rode my bike tonite and missed the phone reminder to get a 12 of PBR and claim the Ferrari.

If you start flipping bikes, you might surprise yourself and be able to afford a Ferrari.

Paul, I know Ferrari has had a 30 year relationship with Colnago. I wonder if they collaborated on a tandem in the past?

My favorite Ferrari-Colnago:

Possibly. I remember when this was on Italian eBay.
