F.C. Parkes Tandem

I am hoping to fill in some gaps about a tandem I restored back in 1975. The tandem was an FC Parkes lightweight finished in black with white seat panels and all the correct and original transfers. The frame number was WT36 and I last saw the bike in Hull in 1977. It was a tandem I exchanged for a triplet and since we moved away from Hull to South Wales in 1977, I lost touch with it and it's whereabouts. We then moved from S Wales to Romsey in Hampshire in 1981, where we still live. Earlier this year I went to the Romsey tip to deposit some rubbish and look for old bikes, as I sometimes do, and saw my old FC Parkes against a fence. It had been brought in only minutes before and already had interested parties wanting it. I was fortunate enough to buy it back before anyone else and was wondering what had happened to it between 1977 and 2008. The mudguard did have a familiar Tandem Club sticker on it so I wondered if anyone had registered it with yourselves during that period. I was just curious to find out. Any help would be very welcomed,
