I don't know if either of them are CR members or not, but my memory is that Patrick Moore from the iBOB list had an Orbit tandem frame fail spectacularly on him ... fork crown, I believe. This would have been three or four years back. While it is admittedly a small sample, I would exercise caution long enough to give it an extra-careful inspection before riding it ...

Classic rendezvous specific note - Patrick's brother Peter sells neat stuff online, and is listed among Dale's sources of bits and parts ... Esoteric and Eclectic bike parts ... and he also does the twowheelfetish ezine ...
