Fillet is curvy in a gorgeous, female curvy way. Sensuous. Lugs are like the name -can I get a power tool with that? Rex does nice fillets, too and his prices are surprising...

No connections to seller (altho I'd like to have a connection to that frame!)

Yes.....I owned one of those Sports Tourer models. Light blue color as I recall. It was stolen from the complex that I lived in around 1973.
You are correct. It rolled beautifully.

I bought another Schwinn.....Super Le Tour 12.2 (or something like these numbers.) As I recall, I felt the Sports Tourer was a better bike.

I know. I've got a Kirk coming in 4-6 mos, and I can't decide if I want a lugged JK Special or brazed frame. Those brazed photos start to sway me just a bit...

If only the rest of my life was filled with such great problems!

Some more fillet brazed goodness :^)






Tony P. has done lugs, but I think is exclusively FB'ing now. Funny but I picked him because he seemed like a cool builder with a great reputation for a relative newcomer, not really because of the fillet brazing...
