    Found an old Burley tandem tourer.

    A friend of mine had this in his yard for nearly a year, and I had to do something! I offered my big orange stretch cruiser, and he bit. No it's not stolen... He got it from the original
    owner who began having children within a few months of buying it. So, it sat unused in his attic since 1993(4).. The dirt is from sitting in the friends yard, and should clean off easily.
    Yep, that's a Burley Bossa Nova touring tandem!! Suntour XC pro components, Specialized cranks. Dual rear brakes(hub and cantis) and single canti front brakes. Canti's are Suntour "self energizing. Four water bottle mounts,
    that I can see anyway. There might be more that have gone unseen. I am thinking of Specialized Armadillos and yellow wrap on both bars. I am not sure who picked the red wrap, since
    white and yellow are the only two colors other than the metallic black. Should be a project and a half, but it will be worth it. Originally $2,300 brand new, what a find,,,,BD

    Something tells me I will need a dirt drop, periscopa, or a Technium. I'm 6'1" and the stoker is a petite lady

    That looks great.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    According to Burley they do. I love all the nice little touches, too. Three brakes, pump pegs on the bottom tube, Specialized cranks, cartridge bearing eccentric front BB. I can't
    wait to get this thing on the road.,,,,BD
