There may be something else under the cable guide, but I doubt it.

Not too familiar with the P series. Were the Teams fillet brazed?
Nice find,

There is more, the number is actually 8P39.
Here's some more pics:

The wonky back wheel's been sorted - Tha axle had drifted over. A common early Nuke Proof fault?
The Chainrings and Sachs cassette are virtually unworn, as are the Mavic 230 rims, and the bearings are sweet. The chain needs replacing though.
I need to find time for a ride :?

The P20,21,22 were tiged the P23 and WCS frames were fillet brazed.

Although the P23 is heavier than the other Project series.
IMHO The early brazed Ritcheys are far nicer frames.

The P21 and 22 "Team" frames were filleted too.

I was thinking more like T. F,as the frame is probably a 91ish ?

Well you never know!! Would increase the value loads.

I stand to be corrected! I always thought the P20-22 were tig'd.

And the team, 23 and WCS were brazed!!

The older i get,the dafter i become.
