This model benefits from having most of the improved specification including: BSR Sturmey Archer gear hub, Dual Pivot Brakes with Logo brake levers, and frame clip that holds the bike together when lifted in the riding position.
This bike has been ridden for occasional leisure use and a short flat commute in London from London Bridge to office in mostly fair weather, still having plenty of wear left on original tyres. Copy of Brompton Owners Manual.
Bought this through cylclescheme 2 years ago and have ridden it to work and back since (about 2 miles round trip). With new motor, tyres, recon battery, go pro, helmet and accessories, a good solid bike, with a wonderful kick of life about it.

This is a vintage tandem bike hand built in the uk by Dawes. The bike is in full working order and ready to ride. The bike is very much original and has been recently fitted with new mavic alloy rims. Front and rear centre pull breaks as well as a rear drum break makes stopping safe. In terms of frame size, it measures 56cm at the front and 52cm at the rear so is suitable for most couples. Cosmetically the bike frame in general is in very good condition with no major scraps. There is a patch of surface rust (see photo 11/12) which has been painted with iodine paint to prevent it spreading. Other than that the bike is in good condition, ready for you to ride and enjoy. Cash on collection from colchester Essex.
FULLY REFURBISHED. Here we have a lovely old YEOMAN lady back Tandem. This bike looks and rides superb. This really is a new old bike. New prop stand. New rear carry rack. All bearings have been either replaced or regreased prior to the rebuild.
I bought this 1996 bike recently because it looks as if it has hardly been used. Spent some time recommissioning and have now used it quite a bit! However, I am 5'11", already have too many bikes and it is only just big enough for me with my 32" inside leg.
It is a great chance to own and ride a great piece of cycling history. Beautiful Claud Butler Ultra short based Tandem, a comfortable touring machine, rigid, responsive and fast on hills, with perfect steering at all speeds in addition to positive breaking to both wheels.
Reynolds 531 Tubing. Sugino GP 170mm Crankset with Sugino 50/34t Chainrings. 57cm Seat tube C to T. 57cm Top Tube C to C. Suntour 'Raleigh' Power Shift Downtube Shifters. The bicycle rides very well, with full mudguards its a nice winter machine!
