Pics of stripped bikes

I'm sure some of you have done it, but I couldn't find any pictures. I'm thinking of doing it to my Trek 4900, just to make it different. Anyone have any pics of frames that are stripped?

Stripped. You know; no paint, just bare metal.

No photo's today, the last paint came off the bb on my Ritchey today. Only the seatpost tube has the original red.
Forks are polished and varnished, just to stop oxidation.
Pics maybe Thursday.

Nekkid bike, the seat tube is original paint with remnants of proprietary metal and make decals.
The bb shell is exposed steel, and where they meet, the seat tube is ovaled.
*Please note the pleasant lack of rear wheel plastic spoke protector.

I think Stretch was into assembled bikes with no-paint. Maybe with little or no thingers cluttering up the look?.

all things considered, i think a covering of some sort is sexier than totally stripped.
