A friend is giving me a Raleigh Companion tandem, he is buying another. He said it in great working order, hardly been used. I was wondering what level of bike does it fit in with other models. I think he said it's a 2005 or 2006, a 8 speed with 26 inch wheels and riser bars. Would such bike be road worthy for touring and/or club rides with slicks and possible drop bar conversion. We have a local CO OP so parts are no problem and I have better then normal maintance skills. When i receive it, I will post pics.
