reynolds 531 tubing

I recetnly visited the national motorcycle museum in England and saw some beautiful motorcycle frames fabricated from Reynolds 531 steel tubing, butt brazed without lugs. They were uncoated, no paint or coating of any kind, were absolutely clean, and were state of the 1970's art for road racing frames.

What is Reynolds 531, what brazing technique would you use, is there a current equivalent steel alloy?

Thanks, Brian

At the moment there seems to be a bit of a server problem on the site, but I imagine that will get fixed.

531 is chrome manganese if my memory still works. Unless you have some special reasons I think you could get similar results with chrome moly. Henning
