Here are some pictures of a Columbia tandem that my aunt restored after her friend dumped it on her. Apparently this was in a yard against a garage (and mud) for as long as it was bought, plus or minus five years. Illinois weather, Chicago weather, pickled it well. Sort of recently was it hit with a bunch of pink lawn/sidewalk paint on one side. I think she made the right decision sanding it all off just to expose those beautiful silkscreened decals.

Without further ado, here are some of the mid restoration photos:





And one in the sun, all wired up:

I think that's a typical story for tandems. They get purchased by one enthusiastic rider, who quickly realizes that it takes two enthusiastic riders to make it work. I've got one from the early seventies, looks like it's barely even been touched
