I can't figure that out either, thus front, rear and the next pic you see it will be on the front again.......very confusing

Actually it was the front wheel that I laced up for the 24" suspension fork that I threw on it for DR, now I'm just using it as a reference as the 2 new wheels for the tandem will be 24" instead of the 26" that came on it originally. That wheel won't even be used on this build, but that tire most definetly will be....it's awesome for asphalt or concrete.

It will be a unicycle of such though......only one set of pedals and cranks and one tire per rider

Cool Re: New tandem build, from the old tandem.....

Man I gotta fix that, don't want this info falling into the wrong hands

Do you know how hard it was to bend that 6061 T6 upper engine bracket without a hydrolic brake or press?

Believe me, I seriously thought about that option.....it's some seriously tough aluminum

I ended up taking advantage of a huge steam roller that was flattening out the newly paved (resurfaced) streets in my neighborhood and it had a hard time puttin the bends in that plate

Wink Re: New tandem build, from the old tandem.....

I'm sandblasting the frame tomorrow as we stripped it down completely yesterday. Then it will be primed and painted the color of it's name......"The Black Beast". Still have parts to get and the wheels to be built.....this one is alot more work than you think, but will be well worth it when it's done...again.
