I haven't done much posting here, but I'm really excited because we just purchased our first tandem! I used to own a Holdsworth Special, and have always been intrigued by the frames and their history. In any case, once I saw this on craigslist I couldn't resist.
It's a Holdsworth Tandem, pink, and best I can tell it was made in the 1980's.
Made with Reynolds 531, Suntour dropouts, Suntour Mountech derailleurs, Stronglight Cranks, Suzue 48h hubs, Arai drum brake.
I'm the third owner; it was supposedly originally purchased by a bike shop owner who flew to England to order it. A newly-wed couple bought it from him, then us from them.
It rides great and is in good shape, but I'm curious to know more of the history behind the frame. Looking at catalogs I thought it may be a Holdsworth Gemini from the late 80's, but according to the previous owner it's not. The bottom brackets shells are stamped "HADEN," along with a serial number.
Just thought I'd share the new addition to my stable!
