Burley Rock and Roll Tandem

Picture of Burley Rock and Roll

I bought this bike about a year ago with the idea of putting some child-stoker cranks on it and riding it with my 4 y.o. daughter. I've decided to try a different bike. My wife and I have ridden it once. I don't know the year. But judging by the components, my guess would be early 90's, maybe late 80's?

More to come on this bike.

Steel frame. Made from True Temper CW 4130 tubing. Unicrown fork. Pump peg. Four water bottle braze-ons. Drumbrake tab braze-on.
