    I worked at a bicycle shop in the early 80's that sold Takara. Quality bikes for their price range. They did not offer high end models. I do not remember a tandem. It's probably from the late seventies.
    Neat little cruiser !!!

    Takara was an Asian (Japan?) import in 70/80s with average/decent componentry, but not high end.
    Never did see a Takara tandem. Looks like a neat cruiser-type.
    Enjoy the ride TWOgether!
