There have been a number of scam transactions attempted on the site recently – we strongly suggest that you use a third party, such as a bike shop or escrow company for all transactions not done in person.
This is a sweet ride. Originally purchased in 2001 we rode it until 2008 when other family related activities took over. It has approx. 3500 miles on it.

This has been an amazing ride. It has been on a self-supported tour down the Oregon coast, over Beartooth Pass in Montana (10,000+ ft elev) and toured the San Juan islands in WA. Very smooth and stable both loaded for touring and unloaded for daily rides. Easy to break down and stow in the travel case.
The bike is located in Boise, ID. Boise is hosting the Northwest Tandem Rally 2019, July 4th – 7th – great opportunity to ride with 100’s of other tandem riders!

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:

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.
