Re: Swallow Tandem

Thanks everyone. I hadn't expected so much useful and detailed information in such a short space of time. I have no doubt that to build one to this level today would be a small fortune. The condition on his is excellent and I think it's worth about a thousand pounds. I will get some photos and send ...

Swallow Tandem

So I've been asked by a close friend to enquire about a Swallow Toucan Tandem. It is the most stunning 531 frame with an eliptical top tube and the most fantastic lugs with gold detailing.

Re: SPA CYCLES STEEL TOURING FRAMES

I don't have a problem with them at all. I had a Carrera for 3 years and never had a problem with it. Good value for money IMHO.

I'm going to sell it for what I paid plus the courier if it's needed. I'll post it on here at the weekend when I've got more time to devote to it.
