Default There's a "P" in my Yo Eddy Serial Number...

Hey y’all I’m selling this Yo and just realized it’s got an odd serial number. It’s got 1992 dropouts and the serial is 001P2M

It's also got a threaded BB, not sure when that started, but I do have another Somerville with it.

What’s up with the “P”? Prototype?

I purchased this from someone who said that they used to race for Fat Chance and they swore up and down it was a M/L which I thought was incorrect as it has an "M" in the serial.

Any thoughts?

Measure the seat tube and you will know if its a M or ML. Thats a start.

Thank you, Colker. It is a Brooks. It’s a Swift Titanium. It’s my first Brooks and I haven’t ridden on it long enough to give you my assessment. Like you, I have been hesitate, but decided to pull the trigger and try one.
