I was lucky enough to find this Jack Taylor tandem with a captain's position in my size (if not a tad big) made in the year of my birth just two hours drive from me. I won the auction and hit the road just after it ended. The captain's seat tube is 63cm CTC and the stoker is 59cm CTC.
This winter I will do a complete overhaul. I will probably change the bars and brake levers as well as the fenders and lights, putting the originals away for safe keeping.
I was told that this tandem originally belonged to an Englishman who brought it to the US. Years later, when he moved back to England, he decided he didn't want to incur the expense of shipping it back. I suspect he took the saddles with him as the originals were no longer with the bike.
I can't wait to get it overhauled, cleaned, polished and on the road cruising at 30mph. I've wanted a Jack Taylor since first discovering the brothers several years ago. That this one fits me and is from my birth year makes it all the more special. Too bad my wife's not 5'10" so she could ride it with me.
