Tom, Despite having owned a Whirlwind frame since 1979, I can't tell you much more than Charlie Young already has. Norman Kilgariff should be able to date the frame, mine is #18962, probably 1956. In my opinion, these frames are very cool- lugwork is ornate, but not overwrought like certain other marques beloved of CR listmembers. David Benson Auckland, NZ
