Early double marathon Santana on ebay

FWIW; There is an early double marathon Santana on ebay--bidding poorly and ending today. Its decal says its Reynolds 531 Tandem tubing which is interesting if true. Design, appearance and pipe sizing wise it looks just like the Jack Taylor's of the 1980-era (such as those sold by Bikecology at the time). Either way it would clearly make a great tourer.

Anyway it is in California and the seller is not able/willling to ship its so local pickup only... bummer. It is a shame there isn't a tandem shipping proxy service for the left coast!!

Hopefully someone will get it who isn't going to cut it up to make a beach cruiser...

NOTE: Sold for $332.01

I would have gladly went up to $1,500 plus shipping, if shipping would have been possible.

Have to wonder if the inability to ship a tandem (or unwillingness to) might be one of the causes of the depressed prices for used ones on ebay?? Have to ponder on that....

If anyone wants to see the pictures, the ad can still be found under the category of Close Items or something like that...
