    Our New/Old Custom Tandem!

    Picked this up from Curtis about 7 or 8 months ago. I've been slowly rebuilding it over the past several month.

    The wife and I took it out a couple weeks ago for it's inaugural ride at Ales & Trails event at China Camp. A fellow MTBR member snapped this pic of us before heading out on the ride.

    The frame is nearly 20 years old and so are many of the components. Lots of 1-off and custom components on the bike, but we removed the original custom White Bros fork and used a newer, longer travel Rock Shox Domain.

    We look forward to occasionally enjoying her in the dirt in the future!

    Awesome! That looks great. How does it ride? Hopefully the inaugural ride was good and will be the first of many rides together.

    That's a beautiful bike! Great lines.
    I dig steel-framed bikes of all shapes and sizes.
