Never heard of the brand but came across this on e-bay just now and I kinda want to own it.. Never saw a frame that had seat and bb lugs but no headlugs. Any info on this brand?

I'm thinking its fillet brazed.

Looks like it may be a custom or semi custom frame the builder likely didn't use lugs on the front to allow for custom sizing geometry. Very nice frame though I don't see any issue with the lack of lugs just kinda off different.

Odd but it's good to see that they used a proper head tube for the application and didn't skimp on the wall thickness. They didn't simply eliminate the lugs to save weight (and take risks). The brazing on the fork looks good. May be one of the lugged builders will chime in and enlighten us.
