I could start a new thread but this one has the right title! I was able to get the decals for mine through a contact who did a custom set for me. The bike has been stripped and the parts cleaned and lubricated. In some cases, thoroughly. It is now put back together without paint as a trial run and to get my wife to try it out. We have not ridden together on a Tandem so this was a new expereince for us. I did ride a tandem with my sister when she was very young. It was a 20" wheeled take-apart bike we bought in Frankfurt.
Is there interest in my documenting the restoration here?
I had read a lot about how to ride a tandem and was luckey my wife was in the mood to listen. She laughed with joy nearly the whole short ride around the block! The seat was unacceptable to her so we purchased a lady specifc saddle and took another short ride around the block. She was pleased with the difference. I still have some minor adjustments to make, but it worked out well. Learning to swing my leg over the front is a big change! She like to ride in a more upright position so the bike looks like a confused hybrid with my drop bars lower than my saddle.
Ordered some parts today including bar tape so pics will be in order soon. Paint will happen in May.
