    I'm in. I will (I will, I will!!) get it done in time this year.

    Anyway, I've got a frame. It's long. It's low. It's twin engined. Yep, it's an old Sears/Huffy Tandem.

    What I've learned from the Sportliner, the Superleggera, and the Golden Submarine, it's all going in this one.

    Before pics coming soon.

    I have the same frame, I'm depending on you for cool ideas as mine is in the "limbo" stage.

    Do good work!

    Here she is:

    As much of a fan as I am of patina (and this bike has some lovely paint and details), this will be going under the rattle can. Gotta visually tie together some different pieces. It'll be worth it, I promise.

    I think it'll still be yellow, though. Kinda like that.

    Also note; this will be my 4th twin top-tube bike originating from Sears. Don't know why; they just keep throwing themselves into my car (although this one stuck out aways). I did grow up in a Sears-bike-riding kind of family. I seem to remember that the kids riding Schwinns wouldn't get as far from home, or jump as high, or ride as far into the woods as us Sears/Monkey Wards/Western Flyers types.

    Something about their mommas. I dunno.

    Well, good luck everybody.

    Your frame looks so much bigger than mine! I know it's the same size, but mine has been completely stripped of all part with a layer of undercoating sprayed on it hanging up in my shop. Now I wanna get back to mine!

    Re: Bonneville 'liner

    I can't see the photo you posted, but I am looking forward to seeing what you have planned.
    One of my BO7 ideas was a Bonneville Salt Flats Sidecar build using an old Huffy tandem. Maybe I will revive that plan if I see some good ideas to steal from you. :p

    Blue fenders, white wheels, blue frame, tandem bike...the boy's a time bomb!

    Nothing to see here. These are not the tires you're looking for. Move along.

    OK; pics soon. I promise.

    While I'm waiting on parts for the tandem, I'm going to do a little warm up build. See it here:

    Please tell me that this is the donor for an engine swap! Before the day i die i promised my self i would put a v-twin in a bicycle. I know this is no V-twinn but a kawasaki 250cc in a bicycle would scare even the most experianced riders.
