    Believe it or not, they used to put acid in frames to lighten them back in the days of Class C racing when you had to run stock frames. I put acid in me once, was gone for 24 hours.

    17 lbs? That's like 3 lbs lighter than a stock CB160 frame. What the heck did you make it out of? Lead? Is that swingarm pivot solid bar stock?
