It's a stock R3/Dura Ace so I'll only list the parts I swapped.
Wheelset: Profile Design Altair 52 - 1698g
Tires/tubes: Gatorskin Folding with light weight tubes - 600g
Stem: Deda Quattro 110mm - 164g
Seatpost: Syntace P6 Carbon - 188g
Saddle: Selle Italia gel flow SLR - 218g
Pedals: Look Keo - 244g
eBay carbon cages (pair) - 38g
I even shaved the extra cable housing and removed some of the superfluous bartape. I'm beginning to feel a little ocd!
Nice looking ride!

thanks...I thought long about it before buying the gatorskins. The route to my normal ride is filled with all kinds of ugly puncture-inducing stuff. As for the wheels, I might put these on my wife's bike and go with a smaller 38mm set now. I'm just terrified of going tubular as I find myself superb at locating and running over glass so I often carry a spare tube/patches and cartridges in my jersey.
I actually never thought about the brakes, and never took them off to weigh. Any suggestions?
Beyond that, would repeat what has been said already (cranks and wheels).
Seatpost: Syntace P6 Carbon - 188g- this is a unique post diameter; correct?
Saddle: Selle Italia gel flow SLR - 218g - Buy a used Toupe 143 off EBay and strip off the padding and sand the saddle add some clearcoat and there you have a 90 gram saddle for cheap or might be able to find one already done on EBay (I only suggest this because it has a cutout like your current saddle and costs less than an AX)
Change the quick releases to some Tune or something else from Fairwheel Bikes or any number of other retailers.
Change your cables to Alligator i-link

Also, the frame is 54cm - am I able to get to under 14lbs with basic bolt-ons or is it a lost cause?

wait, I didn't mean the top cap, but rather the thing underneath the stem. Is it called a dust cover? I have no idea!
