Well for one thing, on the stock frame, that is difficult to do without
removing epoxy. :) So I doubt many that haven't tackled stripping at least
portions of their frames have never really seen any of the welds. I can say
i've seen most of welds on my stock frame, and I can't really say they're
anything special. Bits of welding wire sticking out of some of them, things
like that. They give the impression that time was more a concern than
appearance. But my frame hasn't fallen apart in 25 years so I guess they
were good enough. The only thing i'm having to deal with is surface rust
from where the frames weren't prepped well enough before getting epoxy

I do think Mark has a good point. The vast majority of us don't really care
what the welds look like, so long as they are strong enough to do the job. I
think the only reason this has come up is because the frames aren't covered
with anything like the stock ones are. If all the stock ones were exposed
i'm sure any welder with any experience could find any number of faults with
them as well
