Discovering the beauty of the Frankenstein tandem

Granted, I usually do bikes and df their riders, but this owner has proven elusive. I have seen the bike across the city centre in Brussels for a couple of years, but never with the rider. Starting to irritate me. 

The bike is far from  custom tandem – or it is the ideal custom. Depends on your point of view. Look close and there are two separate frames welded together to create the tandem ride.

I like this. Most tandems have a bum-to-face design. This one has the comfort of being alone, while close to the second rider. For a city rider, where you can keep chatting to your partner, it seems ideal.
