Help with Tandem ID?

All i have are seller photos. He's listing it for $75, and I really have no idea what type this is. Looks repainted, and has some weird frame geometry. Any help appreciated!

Thanks!

The rear triangle/dropout assembly looks like a Burley to me. Iíve never seen that frame bracing style on a Burley, but that doesnít mean they donít exist. Fisher and a small company named Tango both used that ďup tubeĒ design. The two small tubes from the captainís seat tube to the top tube Iíve never seen before - maybe an addition to the original frame?

Thanks. I think it is a Burley frame thats been modified at some point. I decided to buy it for $50, so not alot to lose. Will need a new tandem front wheel; I think I saw one at the co-op.
