it's funny , the guy i got em from did not know what they were . told him . and told him they were rare . he had never heard of g boy . and did not care about them in the least . he said he was up for a trade . and told me what he needed/wanted . i did some searching around . found what he wanted and we did a trade . i have no clue what these would have gone for on ebay . i have never seen any for sale on there . but i am super stoked on them . the chrome is rough . but it is staying no re-chrome or paint .

Oops...thanks for that Roc. I should have remebered that one..D'oh! :lol:

 

 

Here's a comparison of different seattube gussets. I found four variations...but there could be more.

 

1: Circular rod (most common one)

2: Flat triangular plate (flush to frame)

3: Flat plate (welded perpendicular to frame & tapered ends)

4: No gusset
