What is this Vintage Bob Jackson worth?

I'm thinking about buying this 70s Bob Jackson Tandem for my boyfriend and I. It's listed for $650 OBO, but I have no idea what is a fair price for it. Any help? Here are the pictures provided:

It's hard to say without knowing the condition, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's a very fair price

Big frame front and rear. Make sure it fits.

Typically the rear, "stoker", is a smaller frame dimension. That looks to be at least 58cm/23" front and rear.

+1 Pretty large tandem. Make sure it fits well, as tandems are hard to sell.

Without close-ups of condition, hard to tell. But assuming it is in good overall condition, price is a deal. Large size and tandem depress value quite a bit. But it still is a deal IMHO.

Looks like a REALLY NICE vintage tandem!!

We bought it, it's beautiful in person! No chips in the paint or anything. It was ALMOST too big, but it does fit us. It has some Campy and Cinelli components, too, which is a plus (including a Cinelli frame pump!) And we ended up paying $600. Not bad for our first tandem. We're already planning trips for it, haha.
