1906 Orient Buckboard Engine # 3309

Ladies Orient Bicycle Original and unrestored condition with leather grips and leather saddle.

The 1906 Orient Buckboard, engine # 3309, was purchased from Bill Swiggart of the Swiggart Museum in Huntingdon,PA. around 1950. It was restored by Pete Robinson and sold to Gene T. Fuzzy McKnight around 1954. I purchased it from Fuzzy about 12 years ago. It runs OK. The wheels are incorrect but the correct hubs are there. Some of the body wood was replaced in the 1950’s. The original crank and key are with the car. It is titled as a 1904, but my research leads me to believe it is a 1906. The patent plate and Selden plate are n the car. Oddly there are two Orients in Glaax at the same time about 1952. The second one was found stored on the 2nd floor of the Chrysler dealership, apparently abandoned years before. The whereabouts of this car is unknown.
The 1922 Metz 22 was purchased from a gentleman in Roanoke, VA. aobut 12 years ago. I have little past information about the car. It does start and drive. I was unable to find a number on the engine block. I have two spare engines.
