It appears to have a broken/drewed DS DO/RD hanger. Something going on there.

Mondia Special Vintage 10 speed - $500 (Mesa)

A little too small for me (60cm), but might appeal to somebody here:

Mondia Special Vintage 10 speed, 1970's, made in Switzerland. The frame is made of Reynolds 531 double butted alloy Tubing. It has Nervex Lugs. It has Campagnolo Nuvo Record Drivetrain Group. Also comes with Campy Pedels, Headset, Seatpost, Front & Rear Derailleurs, and Campy Wheels. It does have some scratches, but really in great shape for it's age. The frame is 24" from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post, and 34" from the floor to the top tube. This bike weighs about 21 lbs.

Bridgestone MB-4 - $400 - Carlsbad, CA
https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/...517874551.html
"Grant Petersen Bridgestone MB 4. However, I stripped the bike and I upgraded all the components. This was the MB-4 trailblazer. All the bridgestone MB mountain bike used the same frame and fork, and the components distinguished btwn the mb 1,2,3,4 and 5. Ritchey logic tubing.
When installed it was a new nitto riser stem. new soma bars, new deore dx seat post, new brooks handlebar grips.
cantilever brakes were upgraded to shimano xt vbrakes. wheels are off a specialized stumpjumper.
I had this bike media blasted and then powder coated this orange color. It looks amazing. I purchased the matching decal set and these are the same decals that were on the bike before I had it powdered. New soma riser bars help make this a very comfortable ride. Bridgestones are known for their smooth ride. shimano deore 7 speed thumb shifters. This bike would make a great commuter or cruiser, or tourer, or you could change the bars and make it a gravel bike. Bike is in great shape."

I don't see how that can be determined. The way the chain is positioned suggests that the mech is still in place. But the mech itself, and the way it's mounted to the dropout / hanger is out of the frame.

Do a quick double-check:
Right click image, open in new tab. Now you can zoom the image to full size. Looking at the first photo in the top left corner, the lower front edge of the DO has a curve to the DO hanger. IMO it's just missing wheels and dusty. Caveat Emptor, as always there could be other problems, but a drewed DO hanger doesn't look like one of them.

RUN!

Oh, the hanger could still be there. It's out of the picture. But, something's wrong with the front of the DO. Compare it to the other rear DO. Those curves are going in opposite directions.

I understand these are rather hard to find:

SCHWINN PARAMOUNT 22.5" front 22" rear FRAMESET ROAD BICYCLE TANDEM VINTAGE

Seller is a 501(c)3 organization in St Louis. They regularly re-list items that don't sell, sometimes after reducing the starting bid. They do not accept offers for less than the published starting bid price or negotiate re: shipping costs.

I've done business with them on a few items. They seem reliable.

Not that rare IMO, Schwinn had a predisposition for tandems having built them for 6 day trials at the turn of the last century which was huge at the time and they were the best at it. Building and racing.

They built many tandems and at any given time you can find half a dozen, I think they were one of the more prolific tandem producers at this timeframe, they didn't sell to the public until these and then they made up for a lot of lost time.

This one is cool to me as it has canti posts front and back for good braking with out a drag brake.

Unfortunately many of these are albatrosses now, you have to find one that fits and then ship it from where ever at great expense, then try and find the specific parts, none of that is easy.

Sadly, most anybody that is that serious won't bother with a C+V one of these.

I love em, cool as ef to me, can't find a good one in my/our size, yet.

Also, their ad saying they don't have time to answer questions will surely help keep this in stock for awhile.

Another terrible ad - but maybe good deal
New brakes, wheels and crank? - $100 - LA, CA
"Breaks Dia-compe.Crank is Origin 8. Rims weinmann 700*28c" - I thought the sticker on the rims looked like a Sun rims sticker? but he says Weinmann
"Two bike rims they're both 700 one crank set brand new the rims are brand new and two Center pool brakes that are brand new in the box."
