Frame builder bob brown has some excellent photos of aked frames on his blog: http://bobbrowncycles.blogspot.com/

First is a Ritchey MTB in the "bilaminate" fillet lugged vein that got everyone so worked up a year back. Not a roadbike, but I have to say most of you will not begrudge looking at the construction.

Second is a Falcon that has been cooked to death with brass all over the shell, which is pretty impressive really when you think about it. Probably deadly typical for mass produced british and italian frames in the 70's and 80's. I fear what my raleigh competition looks like under the paint.

Third is a pretty clean silver brazed pinerello.

Anyhow, pretty interesting photos and commentary by Bob.
