So, in the end it is just "The Vintage" with super light carbon seat :) With +2 kg. frame/fork this is expected. I never saw heavier frame here, actually.
It would take a lot more parts like those seat, to get near 7kg. And in the end only frame, more or less, would be left.

And it would be interesting to see that, actually, but pretty expensive to do it. With quality parts, at least.

Well there's the problem :P. The frame is the real weight weenie part though, there wasn't much lighter than that in c.1985. If I had the resources I would love to go full WW on this build, but at the moment other projects take priority.
