Amir,
     Take a look at the photos - that are specifically of seat lug treatments - in this folder: http://new.photos.yahoo.com/fred_rednor/album/576460762322385988
    Even without a legible "B.C" for Bernard CarrĂ©, the style of his seat stay caps would be apparent. What might not be clear from the photos is that the sheet metal used for the caps actually overlaps the seat stays by about .5 millimeters. perhaps Norris has seen one of his bikes on which the caps were filed flush, but every one I've seen has had that distinctive touch of the overlapped material.
      Happy Rosh Chodesh ("new moon")
