Is that 'stoker' handlebar mounting on the frame top tube peculiar to "Pierce"? I've never seen one like that before.
Nice machine!
What year approximately do people think?

What made me first think Pierce was the fork; I had another fork (off of a Pierce) sitting on my bench next to the tandem that is identical. Here are some images of an 1899 Pierce courting tandem that has some very similar features. Also note the badge rivet positions on both.
I would love to hear thoughts on age as well.

I have scans from the Wheelmen Library of Pierce catalogs for years 1897, 1899, 1900, 1901 and 1902. For these years, Tandems are only shown in the 1899 catalog. The Regular Double Diamond Tandem Models 162 & 164 were single steering but double steering was available as an option. They also offered Track Use and Road Use models.
