    I am a new member and would like to share my second build. I mounted the engine in the back v first but this was to close to my passenger (wife) for comfort. I moved it to a midengine position using custom motor mounts welded for me by Bob's Muffler Shop! I also had to refashion the intake because the carb wouldn't fit.

    Thanks,

    Hi Larry,

    My wife and I have owned three tandems over the past 25 years. You've done a fine job on it. How many teeth on the rear spoket? Does it run hot with two up? :ride2:

    Good job

    That is just Totally TOO COOL! I've forever wanted a Tandem Bike, just so that it would feel like driving a Limo on two wheels. This would also be a Great Way to share this Motor Bike experience with my daughter. I'm sure she'd Love it in a hurry!! :D
