It's about average weight for a bike that old. Newer tandems weigh 10 lbs less, but cost more than 20 times as what you paid.
Don't go overboard on upgrading; working in a shop you'll run across some deals. Take your time and see if U-2 enjoy tandeming TWOgether.
Putting STI etc. on a 20-year old bike? We wouldn't. If the components work, why upgrade?
If you do like tandeming, you can always get something newer and sell the Kuwahara.
Is its color white with rainbow like hi-lites by any chance?
