I'm sure this forum gets lots of "What is this tandem worth?" posts so I apologize for being a part of that but I have really no basis of knowledge to pull from when assigning a value to something like this.
I found the following tandem, a Cignal Melbourne Express 21 speed on Craigslist for $190. From what I can gather from online research, this tandem would date to the mid-90's and would have had an MSRP of about $600 new. It has low-end shimano drivetrain components and Tektro brakes. I know it is nothing fancy but I'm looking for something inexpensive and entry-level to see if riding tandems is a viable recreational activity for my wife and I. Based on the pictures it looks to be in okay shape (not rusted out or smashed up)
I know no one can assign an exact value to the bike without seeing it in real life but based on the pictures do you think $190 is way out of line for a tandem like this?
Thanks in advance.
