Very cool ride.

The shock actually looks a bit older than the Judy-based model. My guess is that it might be based on the internals of the Mag 21.

Sorry I don't have more info on the frame :(...

Johnny Alien, Beautiful bike!

I say keep it exactly as it is! That would have been a dream ride for me back in '94--Bullmoose bars would somehow just seem wrong :)

@Capt, I think I may try straightening out that axle--the nutty part of that suggestion was to hammer on it while it was installed in the hub... May not do it that way if I can disassemble the thing....

@Capt, interesting, it sounds like our bikes are specced a bit differently, do you know what year yours was made? Besides he different wheel size, my rear hub appears to be made by Union, though is...

Mine's a '65 Schwinn Twinn Deluxe, though it's violet instead of green :)

Iowegian,

Just sent you an email, would love a pair of those tires too if they're not yet claimed.

Thanks!

Amesja, at this point that's simply more than I want to spend--if I end up using the bike a lot I may go that route and also convert it to standard 26" rims. Maybe even add dynamo lighting, though I...

Velognome, thanks for posting your Twinn, mine is quite a bit different--and more of a boardwalk/cruiser type of ride. It's been a while since I've posted a photo, so hopefully this works...

Kurt,
Thanks, that's excellent that there's the possibility of actually getting a 900a brake, for now I've got a super cheap cruiser brake I'm going to mount and try. I'm thinking I should try...

Wow, sounds like 3 very good options. Sadly the simplest option (900a caliper) seems nigh-impossible to come by... It hadn't occurred to me to re-lace the original rim to a big Sturmey drum. That...

BMX U-brake as an inexpensive (but not pretty) Schwinn Twinn tandem frt brake upgrade

Hey all,

I was lucky enough to pick up a '65 Schwinn Twinn Deluxe tandem.

The biggest issue seems to be that the front brake caliper arm is bent. This has made me think that stronger front...

Wow retro_d, that's a gorgeous build!

I haven't seen a pair of Caramba double barrel cranks in ages--let alone such a pristine pair.

There's a very rare (never seen another in person) cnc...

Anton,

This may not help as it's not vintage-specific, however bending the spring (simply by pivoting the arm while mounted to the frame) is a common way many folks adjust even modern cantis and...

I suppose that means I should post a picture :)

I love that the day I decide to peruse these forums for the first time, is the same day a friend mentions my "work" bike :) For the record, it did apparently take me a day to register and (hopefully)...
