More Team Pro geek factor here.

With pedals it weighs 8.99 kg or 19.82 lb.

My goal is to get it to 19.0 lb. Looks like that could be done with a lighter (230 g) vintage saddle, very light (200 g/each) tubular tires, hollow pin chain (250 g) and light clipless pedals (230 g/pair).

Now, here is something interesting. With an alloy freewheel, lighter bar (like a 3ttt Superleggera), some titanium bolts (quill stem, chainring, seat binder) and nuts (crank), double butted spokes and alloy nipples, I think - not 100% sure - I could get the bike to 18.0 lb.

Admittedly that is nothing special by modern carbon bike standards, but for a vintage steel bike with all vintage parts including full Super Record group, that's pretty light.

Hmm - tempting.
