Thanks- was hoping to find better resolution versions of a couple of those! Seems like the patents postdate the failure of the original Fowler company but Fowler and F.C. Ferrin were probably building bikes pretty similar to those they built and sold in the 1893-7 period.
Spent a little more time getting rid of the white paint with acetone- still wondering if this tandem was originally black or plated. The headset is definitely plated and there are trances of smooth plating along all the tubes, not just at the joints.
I've been looking at the badges again and based on the holes, it seems like Fowler (diamond) and Victor (rounded rectangle shape) are the most likely candidates. The Victor is the only one I've seen with the orient-style chainrings so far. Anyone know the distance between the holes on a Fowler badge?
