Over the last 4 weeks, there have been 3 separate ads in the local classifieds for old Schwinn tandems, or, as the ads so quaintly put it "bicycle(s) built for two". Prices ranged from $260-$290. One said needs work, the other 2 said good condition. Is it worthwhile getting something like this for tooling around? My wife, not a cyclist, is not interested, but I think it would be fun. Who knows? We might really enjoy it and get a real tandem some day.
Any thoughts on older bikes and, specifically this price range, which seemed pretty cheap to me.
If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!
