It was back in the early 70's when I was still living in Hawaii and working in a bike shop. I had met him at a trade show and we might have been his largest dealer-he built it for me as a favor.

I put it together with Zeus parts as pure tandem stuff was rare indeed at the time. The brakes sucked and since I was running tubulars keeping them from melting off on the long steep downhills was an issue.

A year or two later Bill McCready offered me a job at Santana running the assembly department and doing some purchasing so I sold the Cuevas. It got destroyed a couple of years later in a house fire.

Likely it wasn't that good of a tandem in modern terms but you never forget your first........
