Smile New tandem build, from the old tandem.....

Ahhh, just the place to start a thread on a new tandem build.....from an old tandem. My buddy Pat and I are taking the rack mounted Kawasaki 120cc 4-stroke and mounting it in-frame and adding some other goodies to it as well. Some of those goodies will include some beefy front suspension forks, an all black paint job, drum and/or disc brakes and gears, too name a few.

Sit back and enjoy the build of "The Black Beast".....an in-frame odyssey and awesome tandem for sure.....

The powerplant with face-lift













And the frame below, awaiting some major surgery....

This is the tandem before with the engine mounted on a rack that I built for it....it worked very well. Imagine how well it's gonna work with the engine in-frame?!?!

Thanks guys, here's a little more of the frame taking shape for the mid-engine, multi-speed, bicycle built for two......yeah!











A little more welding, some sanding and grinding.......then comes the paint.
