Tandem Club Discussion Board

English Tandem headset size.

Hi all,
I have got in my loft an old english tandem frameset (probably 1930's or 40's)that I wish to build up. I also have a damaged Hansom? tandem frame which will supply the cranksets etc:
However my old frameset has and oversized steerer tube and I wonder if anyone can tell me if a mountainbike 1 1/8" headset & forks would fit?

I want to build it as a simple fun machine to use on the flat cycle paths along the seafront here in Brighton. I may also take it to schools for the children to try when out cycle training. I dont expect it to be anything that it isn't, and don't really think that it would justify having expensive frame alterations done to it.

Any advice from club memebers would be gratefully recieved, or maybe someone could be recommended who maybe able to answer my question?

Thanks in advance.

Terry
