Wonder how he knows it is Tange butted tubing? If that is true, and if it really is more than 45 years old, I would think it would have to be a Japanese-built frame. I can't imagine a European, British or American tandem builder using Tange tubing in 1961 or earlier. I don't even know if Tange was making butted bicycle tubing in 1961, although it wouldn't surprise me if they were.
