That Baron is a lowracer in racing trim (chain-routing and wheel disc) intended for the track where high-speed banking turns require more of body lean than wheel maneuvering. Not that you can't ride on roads in this confuguration, you'd just have to account for the limitation or re-route the chain over the front wheel with another idler to allow more turning should you feel the need.
The photo shows this Baron outfitted for commuting or recreational riding, so one can enjoy a non-racing ride. Just by dropping the accessories, though, you're ready for some phenomenal racing.
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all.
