Reincarnation!

Shawn got this old tandem (over 50 years old, we think) frame for free.

Not such a stellar deal, it was broken in half.

A little re-mitering, a little re-brazing, and a reinforcing strut welded in (tip: do not try to TIG weld 50 year old mild steel, it’s full of crud and voids and welds like poop) and she’s good to go! Have fun on the way to school, Madeline and Shawn!
