Older Schwinn Tandems

I found an older Schwinn Tandem that needs some TLC to make it usable. I don't want to dump a lot of cash, just make it dependable. Where can I find a few vintage parts w/o a lot of work?

The only thing you might have problems finding locally are S-5, S-6 or S-7 tires, but that depends on the age of the cycle.

They have a few online stores like bikepartsusa that sells vintage-acceptable parts.

Thanks for the info so far. The serial number is K826143 which may be from 1958. I think someone has switched out the front fork as it has a different size tire from the rear and ape hangers. Still working on the pics.
