    Schwinn Twinn Tandem Kickback yellow Banded

    I am considering selling my Schwinn Twinn Tandem Kickback but dont know what to ask for it.

    its a smaller frame, orange, yellow banded hub, in decent condition, new white walls and tubes.

    rear seatpost is seized, cant get it to budge

    any ideas? i got it for a hundred bucks but heard the yellow banded hub is rare.

    thanks!

    No idea. If you put it on eBay, the market will decide. Good luck.

    Rare is probably not the correct word, plus "rare" doesn't mean "valuable". Yugo automobiles are rare these days. "More desirable than the other 2 speed kickback hubs" might be more in line with reality, but even that depends on the buyer. To me, the blue band is the ticket.

    The red and yellow had 2 different braking mechanisms, but both had a 1:1 "normal" gearing with a lower gear for climbing. The blue had a 1:1 "normal" with a higher gear for hauling butt.

    The yellow band can be bought on eBay for less than $100, and the rest of the bike is worth whatever a local collector is willing to pay for it, (which is probably not much more than you paid for it unless it's in pristine condition.)

    Other opinions, (particularly from Schwinn aficionados ), may vary.
