Danny

Do you want only the main things like front fork legs complete or every part seperate in weight.

your choice Jarno
probably single fork leg as an assembly if thats without oil stated so.
wheel rims bare but painted with bearings is sensible
and bolts M10 and over

How much lighter is a KR-1 wheel or frame is where Im thinking this would be interesting.

Hello James,
The frame has no number .
I will leave it as is , so no repaint.
Cheers jarno,
Interesting - thanks for the info Jarno.

we've discussed this before.
you can never ever buy a numbered frame, you always have to put your frame number in the new frame. after all, you only buy a new frame because your old one is no longer useable.
if you could buy a numbered frame, theft would be too easy.
Yes - that makes sense Jan, but it would still be fairly easy to buy a 'legal' used bare frame or a complete wreck and then swap the components over from a stolen bike. I suspect that many would-be thieves are not keen on this method due to the amount of work involved - no 'easy' money to be made there!

Regards,
James

I got some digital fishing/luggage scales (hang from a hook)
from local car accessories parts store - capacity up to 45kg for only £7

good for awkward shaped objects too large for bathroom scale footprint
