I just scored an Elgin Twin. I'm going to make it rideable while I gather parts for it. I am BEYOND excited. It's one of my major bucket list bicycles. Here's what I'm starting with. Will post more pictures when I can. Enjoy. I most certainly am going too. Big Moe

Get ready to empty out all of your pockets. Original parts are expensive depending on how far you plan on going. Are you going with or without a tank? Which shroud are you going to buy? Choices, choices, choices.... Happy hunting!

how do those bikes ride? seems like half your energy would be spent flexing the frame rather than moving the bike forward.

maybe on these heavy bikes the frame is not as important. I have a lugged, double butted chromoly frame on one road bike and a Reynolds 853 frame on another and you can really feel the difference.

The serial number starts with sd. Can anyone tell me what year it is. Would be grateful. Thanks Big Moe

These bikes are fun! They are much larger than I had thought just from looking at photos. Rides like a tandem or something, very long bikes.

Don't know the year but i get it being a bucket list bicycle. Super cool design elements. Abstract and outside of the box thinking. If i was trying to gather parts for that particular bike I'm sure I would have a hard time sourcing them locally. But hey that's one reason why the cabe is so awesome.

Just received the frameset with seatpost assembly. Looks in very good condition. It's got the reinforced bottom bracket. And the complete headset too. YAY YAY YAY.

Update on the Twin. Possibly found a good condition front fender. What do y'all think. It's off a miss America. Looks correct to me.

How much he want for it? You can get matching sets for around $80-$100
