My Trek's a rat rod! I didn't even soak the flux off after I was done brazing. The burn marks and rust combined with what remains of the original Imron finish make for a nice patina. And in the tradition of rat rod cars (usually a rusty body but then it's got Offenhauser heads and Edelbrock carbs and Wilwood brakes), it's equipped with XTR, Stronglight, Pacenti, Busch&Muller, Brooks, and American Classic.
