Used tandem sale

We're considering selling an old tandem. There used to be a website: Tandem Magazine that had a For Sale / Wanted to Buy section. It either no longer exists or probably isn't the best market.

I have sold a lot of stuff on eBay with generally positive results but I don't know if people looking for a used tandem would look there.

Is there a better market to list the bike? I'm not a member of Facebook and don't plan on joining to use their Marketplace.

Thanks

Used Tandem in Europe

Does anyone know of a online marketplace for Quality tandems in Europe (other than facebook marketplace). Planning a trip to Copenhagen and don't want to bring my tandem.

FWIW, we sold our first tandem on eBay. We had a local bike shop pack and ship it at the buyer's expense and it worked fine.

It wasn't an old Burley tandem, was it? My folks bought one off ebay many years ago and the transaction went just fine.

No, it was a bright red Trailmate cruiser tandem with a rear drum brake.
We took it to a LBS to tune it up and didn't sell it for much but were glad to get it into new hands who would enjoy it.

Santana Europe in Germany has used tandems listed on their site. See "Gebrauchte tandems" on the left side menu. https://www.santana-tandem.com/de/news
