He obviously does not know what he's talking about. Oxy-acetylene
welding is approved for airplane frames, and with respect to brazing
being unsuitable, lots of race cars have been built with brazed
(copper nickel) mild steel frames. Whether it is suitable for a
specific motorcycle frame or not obviously depends on the alloy and
treatment of the frame.
