We have an early 70s Blue Schwinn Twinn Deluxe Sport. It has a men's frame for the captain and lady's dropped top tube for the stoker compartment. It has some primer spots on it from adding bottlecage inserts, pump frame mounts and the brakes have been changed over to cantilever. It has a drum brake and I installed five bottlecages on it using the existing mounts and others by using hose clamps. I recently replaced the handlebar tape, gel/spring matching saddles (very comfortable), timing chain and drive chain. It also has front and rear racks with a rear trunk bag.
We rode this tandem for a couple of years and decided that we enjoyed tandeming so much, that we replaced it with a Vision Recumbent Tandem. Partially because we could find an adjustable stoker stem to fit the stoker compartment and my wife was get wrist, hand and back pains. The other "partially" was because I wanted to get indexable shifting since all of my other bikes had it.
