Tandem Bike - Roadmaster?

My wife and I picked up a tandem bike yesterday to stroll around on. It needs a lot of TLC, but am curious if anyone can help identify the model, year, and any other information about the bike? The chain guard has Roadmaster on it, but upon searching numerous pictures and sites on the internet, not able to find one. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Roadmaster was a brand sold by Sears-check catalogs from the 1950's.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's a homemade frankenbike made by combining two frames. That boom tube (the tube connecting the two bottom bracket shells) looks too small in diameter for a professionally designed and built tandem. I could be mistaken.
