Hi Sterling,

Your Baylis looks very nice!  Were you seeking a "Bates" style replica, a s your frame looks like a copy of the lugwork on my Ron Cooper built "Bates Volante" purchased from England.

Here's the address for photos of my contemporary Bates posted on Wool Jerse y:

Looks like the same lugs, fork crown, and brake bridge treatment sans the 5 31 Cantiflex tubing and Diadrant fork blades.
