Just came across some pics of this. I think they've popped up here before, but the lug work is way cool, and thought you all might like another whack at talking about them. :thumbsup:

Untill now I thought that Anchors only came as Keirin bikes.

That's a real beaut, hold on to it, it's special. I guess it's fillet braised at the top tube/head lug junction etc?
Yes, fillet brazed to the scalloped portions you can see, which are then silver brazed (could be brass) to the headtube and seat tube. The execution is really fine. Sweet fillets, and nice sharp shorelines on the 'lugs'.

There's one on ebay right now, I can't believe the timing of the thread is coincidental.

Yep, it's on the 'bay.

I really thought it was a cool bike though, and had zero interest in doing what it is that has been so vigorously discussed as of late.:rolleyes:

Glad a few enjoyed it, wish it were my size....:thumbsup:

according to their web site the "lugs" are hydro-formed (with oil). no fillet-brazing and strictlhy spoken no real lugs.

step 1

step 2

That's really cool, thanks for digging those up Carsten. It all makes sense now. I guess just a different way to get things done, or do you know if there was reasoning beyond being different?:thumbsup:
