Gambles Hiawatha Tandem

What do you think this bike would be worth were I to sell it?
I have been trying to find the serial number with some help from others on the Vintage Bike forum, but I haven't had any luck yet, so I don't really know the year of the bike, but there is a license sticker on the rear from '69. It seems to be a rare bike, because I haven't been able to find nearly anything about it on the internet. It rides well, now that I have the drive pin back in the rear chainring(it came out while trying to go up a pretty steep hill), and most of it is original, except innertubes, the bell, and possibly the front tire.

Any ideas? Thanks!

It's likely a department store bike. $120 +/- 10%. Most cruiser tandems on craigslist are way overpriced and sit for months. They take up too much space in the garage.

Serial number and exact year will have no bearing on value. Depending on your market, $100 +/-.

Originally tires would have both matched, so one is not original for sure.

Like the fenders!
