Great info, much appreciated Mark B. I’ve been riding tandems since the 1980s and I just don’t recall seeing Gen 1 Dura Ace tandem cranksets...mostly TAs on bikes from the pre-Specialized era, then lots of Specialized and Sugino appeared. There were always those who had beautiful Campy NR set-ups. I have the Specialized tandem cranksets on my 86 Rodriguez, they have held up incredibly well.

As I noted initially, my new Ritchey has a Specialized triple on the stokers position. I assume a previous owner wanted a triple without going through the bother of drilling the original Dura Ace. I’ll ride it this way for a bit while I search for a Gen 1 Dura Ace drive side side crank...maybe find a triple-mod version off a Santana...anybody have one of those out there? Thanks again, Mark(eologist).
