Speaking only for myself, the question you have asked is quite broad. I don't know a whole lot about custom bikes but I imagine you had to give the builder a fair bit of insight into how you plan to use the tandem. It seems to me that they would be in the best position to advise on component choices? Failing that, then you might want to tell us if this tandem is going to need very low gearing or will it be 1 x ??. Will the Stoker cranks be same as Captain or shorter? You also have choices now that we didn't have back in the day like Gates Belt timing ... um, chains. Bottom line, I don't know anything about the 'high end' of things but IMO anyone that does will still need to know some of the things I asked earlier to help you narrow things down.
