Australians Ride Side by Side on “Bicycle Built For Two” (Aug, 1934)

Australians Ride Side by Side on “Bicycle Built For Two”
IN Australia an odd “two-seater” bicycle has been invented by Hubert Opperman, famous distance cyclist. The seats are fitted side by side instead of the tandem style commonly used. Two seats, two pedal hangers, and two handlebars are mounted on a frame made of steel tubing. An extra sprocket is added on the rear wheel. Both handlebars must be turned to steer the bicycle.
