Tandem Cycling - Single Speed, Coaster Brake Tandem?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
My wife & I are looking for a single speed, coaster brake tandem for casual, 'round town riding (A plus would be one with a "girl's bike" frame design in the stroker position - or maybe something like a 'mixte' set-up). Fat tires, fenders, baskets, kickstand(s) would also be cool. The ultimate would be a curved tube frame "ballooner" tandem.
Does such a 'cruising' tandem exist, and, if so, where?
Old Schwinn's, Roll Fast's and Columbia's available at yard sales etc, would be the cheapest way to go if you can find one. However, I think there are some odd brand low cost ones still being manufactured. Your LBS may have access to them. Worksman, I think, is one company that still makes that type of tandem. There may be others. If I find them, I'll edit this post.

Phat Cycle's Limo @ $550 is VERY cool: http://www.phatcycles.com/limos1.html
For a few more bucks you can land the 24 speed Wildwood Tandem cruiser from Diamondback for $630 that is also quite cool:
You could surf Ebay or visit www.TandemMag.com/Classified to land an older Schwinn Twinn cruiser but they weigh a ton (70-90lbs) and by the time you put on new tires, etc... you can spend as much.

Forgot about one other new cruiser, from Sun Cycles:
Also, Ebay has a couple of really neat "possibilities" for around or slightly under $500. Go to www.Ebay.com and enter "tandem bicycle" as your search criteria. You can also get a few more if you enter "tandem bike" in a second search.
