    need pics of clear-coated fillet-brazed steel frames

    I'm on a builder's list for a custom hardtail. Got everything decided
    but the color. Looking for pictures of clear-coated steel
    fillet-brazed frames. Heard it looks pretty cool, but want to see a
    few before i make that decision. I've googled, and searched the
    gallery section of MTBR, with no luck so far. Any pics or links to
    pics would be much appreciated.

    it would depend on how exactly its been fillet brazed, and what finishing the builder does to the tubes prior to and after brazing. The Oryx frames I was dealing for awhile were internally fillet brazed (picture a round brass insert being dropped into the tube end, setup in a jig, and then heat applied externally all around the joint at once (melting the brass and drawing it outwards to achieve a near-perfect brazing connection in a fraction of the time needed to braze from the outside and have the brass flow INWARDS). As such they had VERY clean joints, needing only minor brushing afterwards and the only Tig welding that was done involved around the monostay and the disc mount. If simply clearcoated, this is how they'd look...most people who bought 'em went with powdercoating though as most powdercoat shops will do a bike frame in a solid colour for about $100.
