    Tandems at the 1976-79 NY International Bike Show

    Oroboyz on Flickr has a Gallery of 185 photographs from the New York International Bike Show, circa 1976-80. These include a fair number of tandems. I've culled the tandems from this gallery here. Here's a few examples.


    Fuji 1980


    Fuji 1979


    Melton


    Holdsworth


    Serotta


    Bruce Gordon


    LeJeune

    The pics can be enlarged and seen with greater detail at Flickr. Here's a pic of some lugwork on a Melton.




    Here's some Bob Jackson's:

    Ah, but what about an MKM...

    No MKM . . .
    But did see a Urago tandem . . . very similar to the LeJeune.
    Have ridden some other tandems (lesser known brands) of that era:
    Assenmacher, Berry, Borthwick, Bruni, Colin Laing, Counterpoint, Dawes, Follis, Gilmour, Gottfried, GT, Jack Taylor, Kuwahara, Lippy, Montague, Osell, Velo Schauff, among others.
