    Here are my bare metal bikes, that I built several years ago, out of aluminum honeycomb composite, there is no tube frame in these bikes. They have never been painted, although they have had stuff glued to them, but acetone and a jitterbug (orbital sander) cleans them up.

    Well the frame is bare metal! Done with a propane torch and steel wool, I had the blisters to prove it.

    This is currently bare metal although it will be torn down soon to powder and sell.
