Is there a purpose to that design ? Something that gave a performance or weight advantage compared to other bikes at the time?

Really great little film about the bike and the new iteration here:

thanks, good film and article there. I'd seen tandems with curved seat tubes to shorten the wheelbase but had never twigged that was why the Flying Gate was designed that way.
