Thanks Patric,
Would it be the same fork on a two person tandem?
Thanks,
Chris
Chris ... I doubt it. That fork in the posting
is rather stout and trucky, to say the least ..
but does the job for the four stokers and the
one captain that sail that ship.

Fork does have the iconic ''orient''- fork feature,
being three-honeycombed plates in the crown.
A bit big for a two-person rig (that fork), and having
not seen a lot of Orient tandems ... the five-seater
captured my attention just because of the overall
trucky personality of the machine ... and the monu-
mentality of that fork.


Here are two Orient machines that came to me via
the CABE and / or google ....

Good luck in your quest, Chris.

Thanks Jesse and Patric,
Now I know what to look for. I do need a head badge and most of the parts. All I have is the frame and crank sets. My frame looks like Filmonger's and the "unknown year" one.
Does anyone have a fork with a similar crown? I looked through my extra TOC forks and did not find anything close...
Thanks,
Chris
