    vaguely like a tandem - vintage road bike content

    Sorry for outing this auction - in case any of you guys were planning on buying it - but I've never seen anything like this and had to post.

    How tall was the guy that this was made for? He must have been a giant!!

    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Wasn't there A Mtn. Goat in Oregon for sale forever that looked like that?
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Tempting to build it up and lock it out in front of the house to scare away would-be burglars.

    I'd really like to see the person that was built for! They must be 7 or 8 feet tall!
    Don't call it a gooseneck.

    Yep, that's a big one for sure.

    Last place I worked was a Serotta dealer. We had two custom builds in at the same time, a 72, and a 45. One in front of the other was a hilarious sight!

    Sully, that paint job looks like Exogrid!

    Edit: duh, realized it's a Holland, it probably is Exo.....
