Rather than post pics of the chromed Nervex lugs on my Raleigh International or Prugnat lugs on the Raleigh Team, I figure that I should just post the most unique lugs in my small group of bikes.
That, obviously, is the Hetchins Magnum Opus!
For a Magnum Opus, it's pretty tame.. i.e. no chrome. It was built in 1987, and the use of chrome had largely gone out of style.

a shot of the whole bike, just to provide context for the detail shots....


the head tube lugs......









the top tube, seat tube junction....






bottom bracket (not a great shot)



and the seat stay bridge. I think these are purely decorative.


John got a look at this bike at his ride in 2019, and did a quick video of it too.

I had some fun a while back applying some "artistic" filters to some old pictures, here they are:

Mercian, old build



International, old build


And here, 1970 and 1971

I feel like this sort of thread is in constant danger of becoming a "show us your high end English bikes" thread. I like my Nervex lugs, but even they have to up their game to even be an also-ran next to a Hetchins.









Do bottom bracket shells count?

I think the US imported Motobecane had unusually fine lug work compared to their competitors of the day and the custom lugs were nicely designed.

I can do this.


Top: Capo ModellCampagnolo, CyclArt repaint red-with-white pattern is authentic; modern metallic maroon has a bit more blue in it than the original candy apple red
Bottom: Capo Sieger, repainted by a previous owner; originally chrome or nickel plated lugs

Merckx

Mercian Vincitore Special



Nikor, with seat tube/top tube lug that looks like its choking on the girth of the Columbus Max tubes


And some signature ladybird logos and spearpoint lugs on my Denti, which also features the internally routed thro the top tube rear brake cable, which exits out of the lug itself.

One of the unique attributes of the Trek 760 series was the fork crown from 83-84 or so.

SJX426, Now that looks like a European Motobecane. Don't see those in the US very often. I was talking about the first two bikes in Andy_K's post. But the master as far as I am concerned is Peter Weigle. It takes a really artistic eye to design the curves of a fancy lug to be aesthetically pleasing and Peter nails it every time. Some fancy lugs look like a three year old went nuts with crayons but a good lug designer has real style to the shape of the lugs.
