    I have seen one in person, there is a guy here that has one that rides it in the local bike events. It is one of the most beautiful pieces of wood art that I have ever seen.

            The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....
