Nice one - but not the first tandem. The OED says:

1884 Daily News 19 Sept. 3/3 Cycling on a ‘tandem’ in Norway. When our tandem was placed upon the pier, we were surrounded by an eager crowd.
1888 Encycl. Brit. XXIII. 560/1 For nearly every make of single tricycle there is a corresponding tandem.
