TOC Orient bicycle tread .... a place to gain and share information
after a few discussions on an Orient bicycle in another tread, I came to realize that very few information is known on this great TOC bicycle company
while doing searches here on The Cabe, I could barely find any concrete information.
Like Jesse said, it is also one of my favorite TOC manufacturer.

Please post as much information and pictures that you can find or that you own in your private collections
Pictures of all the catalog pages would be appreciated so we can reference it easily.

Thank you in advance for sharing....
Locomotion thank you for starting this thread…Dick Pope
 
The rarest of the rare and most exciting for me is the Orient 1:30 Model. Harry Elkes, Major Taylor, Will Stinson and others paced on them.
Designed with the smaller front wheel in 26 inch it is extremely rare today.

1898 Orient 1:30
Rider: Clement Swaim of Reno
Notice the reversed stem so he could get farther over the front. All riders had their own unique style.

I don't think the 1:30 was offered as a chainless but I could be wrong. There are Orient catalog scans from this era so it would be easy to verify.
 
Great Foto! This cycle looks like a Chainless. Is it?
I have this photo available for sale if anyone is interested; below is the link. Bill forgot to give me a photo credit.
