Posted by: Peter TITLE: MISC: Worksman Tandem Restoration
Hello ! I have been to this site probably a million times, but I have not found a discussion place for Tandem bikes.
Can a link to a page be made ???? I have purchased a Worksman Tandem bike, that has 26 X 2.125 tires, so I guess that would be considered Ballon Type because of it~s size. So that is why I am posting my message here. Someone left this bike sitting outside for probably 2-3 years or more, and I am in the process of bring it back to life. ( a good winter project!) This is not my first restore ... have a few under my belt already ...
I have already spent hours stripping the bike, and working on the frame. It now has 2 coats of primer, and will be painted candy apple red with the a silver metallic undercoat. The last step will be to clear coat the whole frame. Nice ! I will send a pic to old roads when this project is completely finished. I have seen one other post a few years ago that said the same, restoring a Worksman tandem, and was wondering how it came out. I tried to e mail the person but they no longer have the address linked to the post.
For anyone who may have a Worksman bike, most of the parts for any of their bikes are still available, and can be ordered easily over the phone. I have found a few sites on the internet concerning these bikes, but only a few.
Is anyone else out there into Worksman tandems ????
Anyone interested in communicating about tese bikes, feel free to drop me an e mail or a pic .... !

Interesting! We need to open up a new section just for tandems. Good Idea.
I have a skip tooth double chainring that goes to a very, very old Schwinn tandem and I pulled it from a old, ancient shop and even though I have never listed it for sale I am sure that I am married to it forever. But..........Who can tell!

I think oldroads doesn~t have section for tandems because there are tandems built in so many styles: Balloon, Lightweight, middleweight and even some Schwinn Sting-Rays were built as tandems (the mini-twinn)
