Weight: Catalogue says 23.8lbs. It's got to be there or there abouts, possibly a smidgen lighter with the skewers and saddle changes but I doubt it.
Spec wise the BB, grips, seat, skewers, noodles and chain were replaced along with the cables. Everything else was and remains original to the bike as it was bought all those years ago. It couldn't have been used in anger much since the wear on the chainrings and cassette is non-existant. If only the decals had been in good shape (yep there is a colour difference but that should sort itself out a bit once the elements throw what they can)...oh well!
