Where can i get a good priced tandem? And what's the price?
Start with Craig's list. Find a Co-Motion, Santana if you can. Cannondales and Treks are also good.
Check the websites of those companies for size info.

By "good priced" do you mean an inexpensive tandem or a good price on a new tandem? We need to know more about what you're looking for.

What's your budget?
What type of rides: local, club rides, centuries, touring, racing, trails, off-road?
Is this your first tandem?

On the minimum side, about $1000 for a good used one or $250 for a new cheapie.
You can find them on Ebay or Craigslist, maybe a local tandem club? I got my Cannondale from CL for $650... I got lucky. :)

Yep, CL is your friend here. I searched on CL for a good long time (off and on for 3-4 years) before finding what I wanted. To be fair, I would go through stages of varying commitment so it won't really take you that long but if you're looking for a good deal, act fast when you see something you like (the tandem I bought was up for 3 hours before I bought it and the seller said he had three other phone calls on it in that time).
