    Hello fellow builders and restorers.

    My name is Gert, living in Belgium.
    After the restoration of my tandem construction year 1934, I started with the conversion of a tandem framework to a limo.
    This is the tandem that I restored.

    This is the basis for my limo.

    Actually I do not know whether limo is the right name for what I build!

    I like the lines of the bike. Are you planning fatter wheels and another fork or are you gonna ride it, the way it is now?
    Little piece of advice: if you're going to ride some serious cruises, I suggest you put on more comfy handlebars.
    Looking forward to see it finished. Goe gedaan,menneke. :mrgreen:

    so far this is a solid wheel, but still have a few kilometres driven with it!
    I think is best a strong pattern.

    Coincidentally, a few old lamps can buy one for the tandem and one for the limo. the lamp for custom limo to battery.

    Cool!
    I wonder, don't they sell Fat Franks in Belgium? At least Chopperdome in Gent should sell them, I think. Backwheel looks good,though.
    And what about the colour, is it gonna stay this way?
