A few scans of lugs from an old Nervex Catalog:

Really, these are just the tip of the iceberg.

On page 4 you can also see from the charts just how very many different frame angles and tubing diameters the lugs were made to accommodate. Nervex was one of the more successful and prolific companies. Not only makers of the fancy cut lugs Nervex also made fork ends and rear dropouts and every imaginable brazed-on brace, bridge and fitting for bikes and even mopeds. They even produced nickel plated "stabilisers" or "training wheels" for juvenile bikes. How cool those would be for your young child's retro bike!

The reproduction catalog is very informative and shows sample schematics of a dozen different "basic" styles of bikes for which they made fittings - such as the "Mixte" style, with twin tubes. Everyone should have a copy of the catalog - they may be purchased from Chuck Schmidt's Velo-Retro.com web site.
