    Nice Taylor! We have one from the same year (ordered directly from Jack and picked up at the works), but it could use a new headset. Would you (or new owner if sold) consider selling the extra Stronglight headset separately?

    I received your response to my email re: selling headset separately, but I'm having problems dealing with Bike Forums...hope this reaches you. I was hoping your extra headset is a Stronglight, or at least something better than the one pictured on Ebay. I bought one of those ($75 a few years ago) and wasn't happy. Please advise as if Stronglight. Too bad about lack of interest in the Taylor - it would be a shame to part it out. Have a good Thanksgiving - hope to hear from you early December.

    Exquisite. Nothing like a nice, tall, well-kept tandem. This is what my Burleys want to be when they grow up.

    Can you translate the sizing? Is this especially large? What sort of heights for captain and stoker might work?

    Beautiful, but what are the frame sizes as conventionally measured from top of seat tube to center of bottom bracket?

    So it is made of the 'Tourist' line of Reynolds Butted 531 Tandem tube set. Very nice.

    Hopefully someone with long legs will snatch it up as it is a beauty and well priced at that.

    Wow, what a beauty - and sized for real people!
    Someone with an appreciation for a like-new classic, at a great price, will be very lucky.
