I am selling my 2004 CoMotion quad. Very good condition. On a scale of 1 to 10, this bike is 8.5-9.0. It has yellow to green to maroon fade paint. Uniform sloping top tube from a captain's stand over height of 30" to tail gunner's 22.5". It is 55 cm from the center of the captain's cranks to the top of the seat tube collar. Tail gunner's seat tube is 33.5 cm from center of crank to the top of the collar. The captain's cranks are 175's. The rest are all 170's. The cranks in the #2 spot are drilled and tapped at 145 for children. The sloping top tube makes this a great bike for smaller children. It has flat handlebars in the captain's cockpit with Avid 3x9 shifters. Everyone else has bull horns. Rim brakes in front. Avid disc brake in the rear. Always stored in the house. Transported inside a Chrysler minivan. Has a few small paint scrapes that I tried to show in the photos. I am willing to travel a reasonable distance from northwest Iowa to deliver or meet. I had tons of fun with the grandkids on this bike, but I purchased a Santana Cabrio quad and don't need two. Asking $4250 but am open to offers. Phone # is 712-two two five-2403.

The TCA cannot guarantee the accuracy or authenticity of any ad placed on this website. Therefore, buyers should be mindful that internet-based transactions — long distance, or in person, have certain inherent risks. Buyers and Sellers are both at risk for theft by fraud and any face-to-face meetings also present risks related to theft as well as personal safety. Please take time to do some research about buying and selling from one of the many articles that you’ll find on line, such as one of these: (it applies to bikes also)

You may also want to think about the following (courtesy of Mark Livingood):

Ideally, most buyers and sellers prefer to find one another in close enough proximity to permit a face-to-face meeting, a physical inspection of the tandem and, of course, a test ride; perhaps even an extended test ride. Fortunately, at least in all my dealings with private sellers, buyers and tandem-specialty dealers or builders, long distance transactions have always been quite pleasant and ended up with no surprises. So, while there is some degree of risk, if you’re willing to trust your “gut” on a long distance transaction neither you nor the other party should end up being any worse for wear if everyone keeps their cards on the table throughout the transaction.

NOTE: A detailed sales contract should be drawn up for all long distance transactions. Language should be included that spells out all provisions regarding who has responsibility for the tandems shipment, under what conditions the buyer may decline to accept the tandem at the time of delivery and who will bear the responsibility for shipping costs. As an example, sales agreements should plainly state if the seller clearly mis-represented the condition or features of the tandem, or it was damaged in route, they bear the burden for a remedy subject to approval by the buyer. If the buyer simply changes their mind for any reason and no longer wants the tandem, they bear the burden for all shipping costs. In some cases, buyers and sellers may want to use a trusted, local bike shop as an agent for receiving and inspecting the tandem to protect their mutual interests.

The use of a third party escrow service may also aid your transaction.
