Closer to reality would be a 0.5kg weight for the original cover, but any saving is a good saving.
The wheel assy's are heavy pieces of kit, and some nicely laced alloy rims, on trimmed down hubs would save about 5-8kg between both. But hey, this is a heavy honest bike. A whole lotta Rosie ain't a bad thing to deal with. Like doing a Tango with a fully built woman. A challenge, but if you pull it off,you'll get a standing ovation.
I'll have to go and weigh the thing now yah bastard.

Ally rims would be the ticket, has anyone done that?
