Ok here we go. This tandem was imported into the USA by Bob Hansing , from Euro Asia imports, he owned Montrose Cyclery in California, he had Pogliaghi build 6 of these very unique tandems. they are the only tandems that were built with special lugs so that the tubes between the two bottom bracket shells could use TWO tubes that are in the shape of a "D" the flat sides facing each other, all the joints are lugged. The tubing set is all Columbus tandem . I completely restored this bicycle so that it is VERY ORIGINAL, the only parts not original are, the two seats, they are brand new replicas of Concor saddles brand new just as were made in the era, very hard to find, also the rims are Mavic MA-40 700c clincher, the original bike had tubular rims, non heat treated, if you want those I can supply them for you, however i don't think they would be safe.
The frame is a pearl white automotive finish that matches the original, however the quality is much better than what was available in 1974. I built this bike for a friend that can not use it as he is no longer able to ride, the restoration cost was higher than the asking price, but we need to sell it. Please contact me for any additional information, i have been in cycling since 1956, so please make us a reasonable offer, we will crate the bike for shipping, If you are interested , Thanks

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:
http://www.kbb.com/car-advice/articles/protecting-yourself-from-online-fraud/ (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.
