Looking for more info on this Tandem

Hi tandem people. I'm usually in the C&V forum, but the guys thought that you could help with my question. My friend recently accepted this tandem in as a trade and is now looking to part ways with it. What I really need is an idea as far as pricing and maybe a good place to market it. Our area really doesn't work with a cruiser style tandem (we live in a land of roadies and mountain bikers), so I don't think that he is going to get much action on local CL. Thanks for any information that you can provide. Here are some pictures

Very Nice Condition

I own two of these. A '79 in "Sky Blue," and a '77 in the rare "Flamingo" color. They are both in similar condition to this bike. I paid $450 for each one. That would be on the high end of value because I really wanted them.

The value of these tandems can really vary based on location also.

You could post it for sale here. http://www.schwinnbike.com/usa/eng/f...isplay.php?f=3

Shipping these 63 pound bikes can be cost prohibitive.

A collector 'may' be willing to pay $350 - $400 as it looks to be in fine condition.
Anyone else that's just interested in a cruiser tandem may be willing to pay half of that amount.
Just our opinion.
