Now that is baffling. Any reason why you don't own one?? Well then i guess your opinions about Co-Mo are unbiased then considering that you don't own one.
Yes, I'm an unabashed fan of Co-Motion, even though I don't own one. Pretty interesting, eh? It even baffles Dwan.
I am going to do exactly that.
In closing, you might want to drop a note to Dwan Shepard at Co-Motion (Co-Founder & Co-Owner) with a link to the '03 Speedster ad on Ebay to see what he thinks of the sizing (include your personal data para from your post to the list) and to be sure there's not any "history" behind the bike, e.g., lost by UPS and bought at auction, etc... Heck, he may even offer you a great deal on a demo (you never know). His Email is Dwan@co-motion.com It may take him a day or so to get back to you, depending on how covered up he is with work. Dwan's a great guy, he has a great partner, a great company, and they make great products.
Given that so many people say that C'dale is such good value for money if i intend to spend $3200.00 on a well equipped Co-Mo Speedster imagine the type of C'dale tandem i could have for the same dollars. Well i really couldn't do much more to it to make it a top notch tandem. After upgrading a few bits and pieces i'd probably still fall short of the $3200 asking price for the 2nd Hand Co-Mo.
Again thanks a heap for your advice and such comprehensive responses LG and Zona. I think that your advice is valuable and as such i have made a voluntary donation to the bikes forum. You should see a little red star next to my name in the not too distant future.
I am torn between a brand new C'dale or a second hand Co-Mo.
