Fillet Brazed vs. Tig Welded the P-21 is Fillet Brazed.


Um, sorry GM1230126, , but that's entirely innacurate information you're spewing out as fact... Almost seems to be your thing, though..

The P-23 and the P-21 weren't even available during the same year and either of the two could be ordered as fillet-brazed or TIG'd. The P-23 came out in 1990, the P-22 in 1991, the P-21 in 92, and the P-20 in 1993+. P signified "Project" and 23 was the weight in pounds.

Why spread blatantly false info to the vintage masses?

If you don't know, don't state it.

Hey, you're welcome, buddy. Did you get my PM? Anytime... Publicly would be nice.

Never have been a fan of people spewing out misinformation. Creates all kinds of confusion.

And just for the hell of it this is the difference between fillet and tig. This is a first year Team 23 one of the first batch I assume as the serial show its #5 of the 20" batch.

Nice find GM. There is some one locally with the same bike as yours who uses it as a daily commuter. It hurt when I saw it in the middle of winter as a snow rig locked outside.
