Some time ago my mystery frame and another bike like it owned by another CABEr showed up.

Took another look at it yesterday and discovered mine is a touring frame designed for gears and mud guards. The last photo is of the other bike--a BSA racer.

That's a cool frame. Any idea what the screw in the chainstay is for? Maybe a kickstand stop or something?

That's the clue it's for gears---early derailleurs such as Super Champion or cyclo used a "door spring" that connected near the BB.
