Sometimes good fortune just seems to find you.
I’m posting this in C & L as well as in Tandems.
I’ve been looking around for a cruiser-type tandem. I own a vintage Santana touring tandem, but my daughters aren’t big on drop handlebars and toe-clips, so I was looking for something more relaxed for them. A neighbor stopped by my house the other day, and said he had an old tandem I might be interested in.
Voila! It was a late 60s or early 70s Columbia Twosome, 5 speed, with a drum brake/caliper brake combination. Check out that chrome. He restores vintage cars for a hobby, and I think he started working on this, and then got bored. He even threw in two brand new tires. Not bad for $150!
This bike has a complete lubrication and some new chains in its future!
