Several of the pre-war racers at the BMA have open seat stays, chain stays, fork ends. They look dangerously sharp and cookie-cutter-ish... no fun in a crash.
> Not filling the tube end at the dropout is an acceptable building
\r?\n> technique. It is not well executed on the Peugeot but it is not a brazing
\r?\n> flaw. Leaving the stays and fork blades open is not a common technique but
\r?\n> some superlight projects do it and that is also the way Pop Brennan
\r?\n> finished the fork ends. Many Pop Brennans do not have caps on the tops of
\r?\n> the seat stays either. Makes it easy to use Frame Saver!
\r?\n> Any comments from builders and any other marques that do not fill the fork
\r?\n> end connections?
