I was given this tandem today and don't know the make. I'm leaning towards Schwinn because of the fork and kickstand. The front double is obviously wrong and also the saddles. Not sure about the peaked rear fender. Someone obviously welded on the sheet metal front frame modification.

So what is it?

the front half looks kinda like an old schwinn, but the back is way different, is it all the same color under the yellow?

Every heavily used tandem you find always has a bent backwards front fork, from slamming into the back of a parked car. The learning curve for the pilot about how long it takes to come to a stop never seems to sink in. Lovely house paint job, there. It's a Columbia frame.
