bilenky tandem

just picked up this bilenky tandem from the original owner. I believe he said it's a signature model. I really didn't need the tandem but the price was too good to pass on a fine builder

WOW!

Good on ya, that is very cool, was outed here I believe and I was excited to begin with but let it pass for being a bike too far.

Appears very clean workmanship.
tandems rarely retain value unfortunately
as a used machine- the way to go

Very nice tandem from a great US builder. What size is it? Looks like a fairly large size. You should show it over on the Tandem Group.

Stephen Bilenky has a pretty active Facebook presence. I think I know his shop cats almost as well as my own.

If you send him photos and/or serial number I bet he can find more info about the bike.
