Santana Sovereign Tandem
Built from ultra light Scandium this Tandem is approximately 9 years old bought new from JD Tandems. With 700c wheels and lightweight frame this is a great road going tandem but with ultra low gears for laden touring. Although JD Tandems no longer sell Santana the new cost of the latest model is around £5000+
