Me too! Any idea how much weight you'll remove when you're done?

Yeah, Im thinking when you have finished fabricating, polish it, then medium blast it to get the "matte" look. Then either clear coat it, or cover it in clear vinyl.

The other option would be to do neither. Dont polish it, dont paint it, just vinyl wrap it in whatever you want.

Ok my italian is bigtime rusty from high school but since it has been asked a couple of times: how big is your fuel tank?

Quanto grande il vostro serbatoio di carburante?

That's an amazing translation. Very funny.
I don't know.
And I don't know how much it weight.
In the next days I will complete and I will measure it.

I am loving this build...even made me have a quick look for salvage f800s.

But I am struggling to see serious weight savings....
  • heavier subframe to lighter subframe?
  • none of the original subframe components
  • plastic tank to smaller aluminiumim tank....
  • smaller seat
  • plastic front trim panels to aluminium
  • no beak / instrument cluster
  • single disk upfront
I guess it all adds up......and it looks beautiful.

I am afraid so, too. The stock subframe and plastic tank are not that heavy really.
