Interesting frame, the 'flying gate'. That's a very nice one too. :)

If anyone knows of one for sale in 23in or bigger, do let me know, as I've been hankering after a Baines or TJ 'gate' for a long while.

This design originated in the mid 1930s and was very successful for hillclimbs. But it does look wrong...
:?

As usual, Classic Lightweights will tell all -

I know a couple of people who have either original Baines or TJ ones and, generally speaking, they consider them a harsh ride. However, others love 'em!
