    I would look for a used Santana or CoMotion. Maybe consider upping your price point if possible, you won't regret it.
    I had a Santana that I bought new $5000 and sold it for $2000, it was in great...

    Which web site was the ad on? I was almost scammed selling a tandem, the buyer sent me a bogus check for $10,000 wanted me to cash it, keep $2,000 and send him the remaining $8,000 and he would send...

    Wow that tandem brings back memories, it is the same one we had before we bought our Calfee.
    It is really a very nice tandem and we enjoyed ours for many years.
    One thing with Santana is they use...

    I dislike wider than needed bars. I use 42 cm FSA wingpro which are more like 40 cm for a normal bar.
    I also dislike bars with sharp bends.
    If you want a shallow drop with flat tops these are great...

    +1 That is why I won't settle for less, especially on a tandem.

    My stoker has 38cm bars on her single, I think we have 42cm on the tandem and it is just wide enough.
    It might be different with the cow horn bars you want to use. We have FSA wing pro and really...

    That is how ours is, its never been a problem, your legs should not even be close. Just remember to use the little rubber doughnuts on the bare cable so it does ping against the frame.

    I live not far from you (Encinitas).
    I have never taken our tandem on the Metrolink but have wanted to so we could have a tailwind the whole ride north to south.

    I have the tandem version on our tandem.
    I would assume there is a difference.
    AS far as I know these forks are no longer made.
    You could ask Calfee since they used them until they were no longer...

    I does look quite old.
    Santana makes solid bikes, its going to be quite heavy but would be a good starter tandem.
    I would guess the value at under $500.
    Since the frame is steel I would check for...

    I would go with the small, the medium sounds too big to me.

    I was single when I bought my first tandem back around 1981.
    I think it was partly responsible for my marriage not long afterwards.
    We have been riding tandems ever since.

    Our lowest gear is 28 X 30. That would be heard to achieve on a double set up.
