"Baines Whirlwind, 1947, 24 in: Huret Competition wire rear changer, Gnutti cranks, Magistroni ring, Brampton B8 pedals, GB bars, Reynolds curly ‘lug’ stem and GB Hiduminium brakes, B17 saddle. Harden LF hubs with Constrictor 27 in aluminium rims. Lug lined kingfisher blue paintwork.  Baines ‘Gate’ frames were made in very small numbers by the three Baines brothers in Bradford (near Leeds) from 1935 to about 1952 and consequently are exceptionally rare now."
