How many variations are there?
Here are just a few from my garage
Don't forget the monostay (and rack mount bodged out of a Carradice Bagman collar)

Next is @midlife 's Aende
This one is a Dave Hinde
This is @Senior Ryder 's Soens

Shot-in stays are a real pain in the arse to get right.
its something i never really took any notice of till a few years ago , i was always just looking at lugs
but the cluster arrangement does make a huge difference on oooh appeal
Thing with shot in stays is they've gotta be right on the 1st cut- with top eyes you can have a play. Cut too short with a shot in stay and there's 30 quid (plus time) up the shitter.
You speaking from experiance ?
The thread's on here somewhere.
fair enough , i watched Lee Cooper do some frame brazing a while back and it was amazing to watch and see for sure
It's a pain. Arse of a way to make a living and frankly unsustainable these day with the amount of kit you need allied with the competition. leave them to it.
Since lugs went all boring and "Italian" a nicely turned out seat cluster was the next best thing
