Rare Zini tandem for sale in WA

Check this link to Gumtree (an Australian version of Craigslist): http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/carin...ike/1015105452.

I have never heard of this brand before (apparently it is South African) and one rarely sees twin twin laterals.

Had a custom built Assenmacher (Mich., USA) back in 1977 with similar design.
Had double set of twin laterals; had no top tube for stoker as she is under 5 ft. tall + a bent rear seattube for shorter (60-1/4 inch) wheelbase.
Built out of Reynolds 531 double butted racing tubing; put 64,000 miles on that fast/light machine!
Never heard of Zini, but then most folks never heard of Assenmacher either.

Thats a lot of spaghetti .....I think all the ones w double twin pasta were French. In 70, s was common to add a rear toptube to mixte back tandems. I did 3 & saw another 4-5 underway by others. Did improve them a lot. /k

Gotty Hansen built under the brands Hansom, Zini. These were build as racers, track and tandem, and some definitely custom fit. Gotty Hansen was the president of the SACF - South African Cycling Federation.
