I just went to the Class Rendezvous site and clicked on Chris Pauley and up came pictures of a frame he made with that blind binder bolt treatment. That is an unusual treatment and not popular with many builders because of its complexity to make and the likely possibility that if it breaks, it is difficult to repair. I only remember seeing them from CA builders. That means your frame is most likely one of his. The drawback to that suggestion is that Chris had a marvelous seat/head tube decal so I would think he would want to put those on every frame he made. The difficulty of making that seat stay treatment would mostly rule out an early frame of his before he got the graphics done for his brand.
