Actually - its not as heavy as you think - ok it hasnt got chain on it yet...

Remember the forks are pretty weighty with that big ol motobike disk at the front and the frame isnt exactly featherweight either...


...and that combo bar....well - its not going to break I can tell you...

Its about 26/27ib as Scant says - weighs similar to the old Explosif.

26-27 lb is good I reckon, it just looks heavier.

Very nice mate.

hahha :D

No - it doesnt weigh as much as my 19" Lavadome fully built. Thats a 28 ib'er.


It just "looks" dead heavy.

We had fun getting those Porcs on at John Atkins I can assure you.

Bigup to Nigel and friends there - really helpful bunch :)
