cheap tandems. I've read up some on this subject and most people recommend against buying a cheap older bike, but I want to buy and build up a tandem for my wife for Christmas. It would never be our primary bike because we each ride our own bikes now, but it would make a really neat present and would be a lot of fun. I've seen stories of people having old tandems in their basements and garages from 70s and 80s and was looking for something like that. Something I could clean up, get some new tires, etc and make rideable again. Any places in particular to look - other message boards, Goodwill, garage sales, etc.
Also if there is anyone out there who might have something like this they would sell me (I'm looking to spend under $200 for an old tandem - not including the updating I plan to do) and they're in the Ohio or Indiana area please contact me at email@example.com
