I just bought an old Vista Duo Tandem. I'm looking for some info as to age and value in good condition. It's heavier than my Harley (g)! well it almost seems so. i want to restore it and ride it out at the beach where there are no hills (since it's a single speed.)

The tires are Kelly white walls, 26 x 1.75, anyone know where I can find replacements?


Thanks, Rob

MISC:   Approx. Values? posted by: JoMo on 7/19/2002 at 3:35:01 AM
I was wondering an estimated value on a 1955 Schwinn Wasp (female) bike. It is all original and in pretty descent shape. Just wondering if anyone out there has a value guide that has this bike in it. I also have an old Elgin, but I'm not sure of the year on it.
