Reynolds 653 has steel fork, Dura Ace 7700, DT Swiss Hugi hubs with DT R1.1 rims, weighs in at around 10kg so is no WW, but was my first "serious" bike 20 years ago.
Raleigh RC Ltd weighs 7.5 kg ready to ride with DA pedals, Zipp bottle cages and Garmin 705. Not really light, but a really solid bike for a 195cm 94kg rider.

Parlee Z5 build aiming for close to 6kg with SRAM Red, helped by BB30, Edge 1.38 rims (no longer in production) speedplay zero Ti pedals.
Frame should arrive in 2 weeks and then being built by Cycles Bespoke.
Starting with 3T Team bar stem and post, swapping Ti bolts and carbon seat cable from Raleigh, Selle Italia Carbonio seat. Probably change chain from SRAM Red to KMC 10 XL, all hardware will be Ti.
Comfort and reliability high on list, with lowest weight possible.
Parlee will be for hills rides and Cyclo events,
Will lighten Raleigh to about 6.9kg with new wheels for Masters races.
Raleigh is a rebranded Bottecchia 8avio raced by MTN / Energade team in South Africa in 2008.

Some really wicked Parlees and other bikes on WW sites.
