My guess is about 50lbs, at least. I particularly like the 'internal cable routing'. Nice holes to fill the inside of the huge steel tubes with water, perfect.
I see it's had one bid, I really hope it's some altruistic soul who's going to scrap it and not some poor deluded fool who plans to actually ride the thing.

Let me get this straight... he took a (probably) perfectly good bike frame, cut it up, tossed a few parts away, and then attempted to weld the remaining bits back together, then proceeds to list it on eBay as a custom hand-built bike??? and expects some poor unfortunate to pay for the "privilige" of riding around on "it".

I don't know who's more deluded... the "framebuilder" or the person who bid on it :facepalm:
