Thinking those are CBRs, rather than CBR RSRs, as the arm looks to be fluted along the top side (CBR) rather than the back side (CBR RSR).

Paint doesn’t look good through with lots of bubbles.

Do these rot near the BB or have I dreamt that?

Yep.. bottom of the seat tube tends to be susceptible to rust. Not uniformly though. Always an area to check out, just to be safe.

Sadly these frames like many high end steel ones of this era get eaten away slowly by our damp oxidising atmosphere. Combined with riding water ingress into the ~ 0.4mm sealed seat tube its caveat emptor. Also seems to be fewer frame builders around to fill in holes or sleeve a section in neatly for sensible money + a repaint and shipping back and forth etc.

Cant see close up pics of this but the other small one on ebay looks pretty bad. Its a t shirt i have had in the past alas. Clean your Yos rust out and use frame saver liberally or buy a FAT Ti 8)
