The Bailey patented clutch shown was offered on the 1920-23 models. The frame lost the headstock brace in 1920 too. At that time, that clutch with kickstart seems to only be offered on the three-speed; the top of the line 2-3/4hp model I suppose.

More likely to be 22/23 model. 1920/22 were almost identical but had the larger rear carrier. It is model 'W'. Not quite top of the line according to my original 1923 catalogue. It lists a 23/4hp with similar 3 speed/clutch set up and all chain drive with RA style brakes (Model 3 S.C.) Anyone ever see one ?  Nev
