Ok, I am not sure if Sam Cotten would be considered a KoF but check out ebay item 7185592167 and read the description. To think that my Sachs is made out of wasing maching bits is depressing;-) Didn't Graeme Obree ride a bike he put together out of washing machine parts to an hour record?

On a classical note. When and who did the first fillet brazing. I have a Holdsworth La Quelda 1948 was arc welded (Fillet). I am not sure when they first started doing that. Late 30's I think based on some advertisements I have seen.
