We're selling a 1970's vintage Schwinn Deluxe Twinn 5 speed tandem bike. I've spent several hours cleaning it up and making sure everything works properly, and I've added brand new tires. If you're not familiar with Schwinn tandems, they are built ruggedly and will last for generations. Notice the thick spokes in each wheel to handle the extra weight of two people. And to stop safely, the rear wheel has a drum brake rather than a caliper brake on the rim. This bike rides smoothly and is lots of fun, especially for an adult and a child. It also helps youngsters who are still learning to ride a bike to feel comfortable on a bike when they are the passenger.

Schwinn five speed tandems are not as common as single speed tandems. Please look closely at the photos. The decals and paint have minor blemishes. Considering this bike is around 50 years old, it's in great condition and ready for another 50 years ! The whole family can enjoy this bike now, and then pass it on to another generation.

Compare to the cost of a NEW tandem. First $500 cash. We are located in Greenwood, near Greenwood High School.

Please note this bike is about 92 inches long (7 feet, 8 inches). Unless you are comfortable removing the wheels and readjusting them when you install them, it would be best not to take off the wheels to transport it. We're located near Greenwood High School, in Greenwood, about an hour north of Bloomington. NOTE: For an extra $20, we're willing to deliver to BLM to a parking lot near BikeSmiths.
