Schwinn Twinn Tandem

This week I found a Schwinn Tandem bicycle for sale on Craigslist and forwarded the ad to my husband at work, asking if it could be our 10-year anniversary gift to each other. He quickly responded with, “Yes.” So after a quick test ride, we packed our new 1960s Schwinn Twinn Tandem bike into our van and hauled it home that same evening. Check this thing out!

I have wanted a vintage tandem bicycle for years so I didn’t hesitate to pay $150.00 for it. Its “radiant” blue color still pops and the bike is in wonderful condition for its age.

Here is a picture of our bicycle in a sales brochure with a caption, “It’s new for ’64.” Can you believe in 1964 this bike sold for $99.50?

Besides maybe a vintage camper,  I don’t think there could be a better anniversary gift. Thanks Honey!
