Can Anyone Help Recognise This 1960s British Bike?

Hi, got this bad boy off my friend's dad a few months ago. Hopefully soon I'll rebuild the rear wheel with a track hub soon, but before I do, I'll post a picture and see if anyone recognises it.

Thanks!

tommyd, I can just barely tell by your picture that there is a bike in it. Could you post a few more, with some closeups of the headtube area and the seat cluster?

It's a Bat Bike. It hangs from the ceiling sleeping all day. It only comes out at night and "flies" down the road. It is a stealth Bat Bike, no one can see it.
