    This is my 1968 Schwinn Mini Twinn. Schwinn only made these one year. They retailed very close in price to the full size tandems. Most buyers thought "more was better." I bought this from the original owner. He & his sister received it for Christmas 1968. They rode it alot... Later in life the guy had it restored to it's former glory! I was high bidder on E-Bay with the bike but did not hit the reserve. He asked me what I was going to do with the bike.... I assured him my wife and I were tandem riders (this makes 4) and that it was a keeper for me.... The first picture was taken a few hours after I bought it.
    The Second and Third shots were at a magazine shoot. The Fourth shot is on the Boardwalk in Ocean City NJ.

      I bought one of these about 6 years ago,and it was not half as nice. Mine sold on ebay for $ 666.66 . People bought these for their kids, but they wanted their own bike,not to share one. Beautiful.

      Hi, this is Jim, I sold you the Mini Twinn. When I sold it I never anticipated having a child but now I have a 7 year old boy. I would love to be able to give him my old bike if you would be interested in selling it back (at a generous profit of course). Thank you for your consideration. Jim 602-499-0100
