I decided to jump in the build off because I was planing on building this any way . This is a 1896 Barnes and Sterns rear steer Racing tandem . This bike could be one of the oldest build of bikes in build off history ??? The bike was $150 in 1896 . There’s a lot not correct on this bike . But the frame fork cranks & seat post are original. Someone tried a restoration in the 1970s based on the parts that aren’t correct on the bike. I may keep the cranks and chain rings? I’ll see how this progresses but a lot of the 1970s pieces are going .
