'Iconic 'Trandem' from The Goodies up for auction

29 AUG 2018

Three-man bike that grace British comedy across two
 decades to be sold at auction next month

Fans of 1970s comedy and cycling may want to put their hands into their pockets as the three-rider 'trandem' that played a pivotal part in The Goodies will be put on sale at Ewbank's Auction, Surrey next month.

The Goodies were a trio of British comedians, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie (before the bird watching) who created and starred in one of the most iconic comedy programmes of the 1970s and 80s.

Many of their antics took place upon this iconic three-person bike, known at the Trandem, which Brooke-Taylor, Garden and Oddie all rode.

There were three different Trandems - one for each series - and Ewbank's Auctions will be selling the blue bike which featured in the final series.

The bike was originally sold by Sotheby's in 1987 before collectors then sold the bike on to comedy trio The Trap in 2004 for their Edinburgh Festival Show.'
