Subject: [CR]FS: Nobilette road tandem for shorter riders


I have a very nice Mark Nobilette 531 fillet-brazed tandem for sale. It is in stunning, near-mint condition. I purchased it in the hopes of getting my wife to captain it, but it appears that isn't going to happen (she prefers that 20-pound SL Guerciotti for some reason)....

The bike was built circa 1988 (I'm guessing; not sure, as I am the second owner) and has maybe 300 miles on it it total. Original cost was allegedly about $6K. I'd like to get $1800 plus shipping for it. I'm not sure exactly how to ship a tandem (any listmembers with experience in that area please feel free to e-mail with advice). I expect I should get/purchase a real tandem box from an LBS and then pack it very carefully...


19" F / 20" R (29.5" / 30" standover height) seat tubes c-t;

19.75" F / 25.25" R top tubes c-c;

63.75" w.b.;

NR tandem cranks (165 F / 167.5 R) 36/42/53 w/Phil BBs & Haden front eccentric;

Record SL pedals w/toeclips & straps;

40-hole Phil hubs (rear has disc brake);

Mavic Module 3D Argent rims 700C;

DT 14-gauge SS spokes:

Conti SuperSport 700 x 28 tires

Cinelli front bar & stem, Santana stoker stem w/ ATB bar;

Chorus monoplanar (I think) calipers controlled by Modolo levers;

39 lbs. road-ready.

Italian colors (tasteful red/white/green Imron) w/chrome fork and most of rear stays.

Please respond off-list if you need more info. or may be interested.
