1939 baines whirlwind

Hi all I posted pics last year of my old mans gained.
Its now complete.
I will probs get a load of abuse but hey ! Here goes.
All new quality parts if I had opted for original ones they would have cost a fortune and frankly I wouldn't have picked most of them out of a skip lol.
The "extra" bits of the frame where added umpteen years ago and although not standard have been done very well .
The serial number dates the frame to 1939.
It was originally a fixie.
John.
I may sell as its miles too big for me !
When I figure out how to upload pics I will !

Interesting to say the very least... Deserves a sympathetic compliment of parts that look more period correct, methinks. Lots of potential there!

Proper base for a good "fixed wheel" (britspeak) build.

Dare I say and given the OP reasoning, kind of like it. When the 'push come to pedal' keep me posted on the frame

Cool frame. Presuming that's a replacement fork, do you still have the original fork? I know original parts would be extremely hard to source, but that's still not how I would have chosen to set it up.

I guess it's most important if you like it.

Fixed gear doesn't have up be deep v's and bullhorns though, I thought that had gone out of vogue at this point anyways.

Neat unique frame, all the same.

Wow. I'm kinda ashamed to admit it, but I don't hate it nearly as much as I thought I would. With those components, the frame looks positively modern.

But it also looks like it's too big for you... though I think I know someone whom it would fit nicely.

With the seatpost so far back from the crank shaft, I guess it qualifies as the first townie, albeit for a very tall person.

Baines Whirlwind? I've only heard these frames called "Flying Gates" is there something different from the "Gates". Anyway; very, very cool!

Hoo boy. With all due respect, I'm firmly in the camp of a much more sympathetic parts group. If you decide to pass it along, drop me a line. It's a cool frame.

I like it. It's a bicycle after all. The frameset is still intact for the next owner to do what (s)he wants with it.

The proper name for the Baines was Whirlwind but somewhere along the line they acquired the nickname flying gate.
I cannot pm you as i don't have enough posts to allow this (how bizzare)
I would sell but shipping would not really make it worthwhile and there would be a chance of damage ... Sorry .

It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be with the modern parts. The gate tricks the eye. Nice job setting it up.

Where are you located, @bainesorbust?

I like it a lot! It lives on with lots of class!

Given that it is near impossable for for anyone that is not a serious collecter with a serious collector budget to finish it period correct.
How can 70s-80s bits be more approperate than 90s-10s bits on a 1939 frame?

I'm sure I would have done it with different bits but I would have used what I had and / or what I like that I could get on the cheap.
