Sora shifters, Tourney drivetrain and a chain tensioner on the boom tube? That's department store quality stuff. I wouldn't bother with a single bike with those components, and things that are annoying on a single bike (mushy brakes, imprecise shifting) become magnified on a tandem, due to issues such as frame flex, longer cables, and much greater stresses on the frame and drivetrain.

I'd rather have a decent quality 15 year old tandem with bar end shifters for around that price.

The real Lamborghini wouldn't make a shift knob that only cost $449.00.

The only Lamborghini bike I've heard of is one that Lucas Brunelle rides. He's the guy who put all
those helmet-cam riding vids online before it was cool.

thanks all for the input. That's exactly the stuff I needed to know. It's officially a non-consideration. Back to dreaming about Santana, Co Motion, even a Trek.
