Help with the value of tandem
A close friend of a family passed away last year and I am helping the family downsize. So I got this old Schwinn tandem which is primered but rusted, and I've decided that it'd definitely bring more parted than together considering there are some decent components on here, or at least were back in there day. I guess I'm not sure if there's a market for older tandem parts.
I was wondering how much would be a fair price for this kind of stuff.
The first is the Stronglight crankset.
pretty good shape, the bolts are the only part that have a bit of rust.
Sorry about the terrible photos, they're all direct from my phone..
The tandem wheels are a bit dirty but I'm sure they'll clean up half decent, they have Phil Wood hubs and they still spin smooth. A lot more spokes than the average bicycle wheel.. Annnnd they have disc brakes.
There's a shimano front derailleur, is it tandem specific?
Brakes are Mafac, the brake levers are shimano and the bar end shifters are suntour.
Nothing else is really salvagable.
