|Does anyone have a frame like this? I'd love to see a picture. Anybody have a link to a builder who has pictures of unpainted frames on their site?

|For the 2001 model year, Mosh produced some steel BMX bikes with a color that was described as "raw." As you might expect, the colors at the welds were kind of purple that faded to steel gray about an inch down the tubes. I don't have a picture, and all of ours have ben sold out so I can't take one anymore.
Mosh is Giant's BMX brand name, so you might be able to see one at a Giant dealer. Good luck.

|Baylis it tops in my book. He considers himself a full time painter these days and only builds a few frames to fulfill his creative side.
Regarding a clear finish on top of bare steel, it won't last long. Maybe some sort of clear powder coat (is there such a thing?) would last longer, but normal automotive clear paints are intended to be a applied over a base of some type.

|This winter I got my racer repainted. I was so close to just going for the clear coat, but I decided to go with a silver powdercoat with clear coat over it. That gave the frame "more sophistication". I think I would've regretted the bare metal look after the novelty wore off.|| |
