    2 girls bikes, that's a bit unusual.
    BF Goodrich and a World. Both built by Schwinn.
    The ad listing suggests it's some rare antique. Sure.

    Was the back half shortened/lowered? I'd like to see how it looks with riders on it.

    Not shortened or lowered. It was two different bikes welded together.

    Based on the decals, the front of the frame looks to have been a Schwinn Woodlands mountain bike made of Reynolds 500. 700c road fork, road wheels. Back half? Don't know. It's on eBay. You could email the seller to see if he has any photos with riders on it.

    The back seat looks hella uncomfortable!

    Wooden recumbent rickshaw. Not really a tandem, but...
    I sat on it one time and the frame flexed a lot.
