I very much doubt weightweenies has frame weights from that far back tho.. You might have more success finding out all the weights of the components on the bike. weighing the entire bike. then minusing the parts & see whats left, IE your frame! I'd guess the true temper Bravado would be ligher :)

The tru temper will be lighter, its a much better steal and they were mostly butted, 4130 is a very common cheap steall often used in bmx bikes as you can fix it.
