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? :)

I must have pushed the wrong button.
Kevin says the Ducati GP frame even uses smaller tubes but I like the massive look.
BTW It's not strickly legal as it's not really a copy of something from the 60's.
I expect to be protested as soon as I win 200GP with a 125! Or maybe even 250GP.

FFFFFFFRANK,
Looks legal to me. It will be interesting to see how fast you can make it go. A rotary valve two stroke should be able to make some good power. Of course...no matter how fast it is...it's still you riding...I got no worries.
Aaron will be picking up another trophy for me at next years banquet :)

Flippin Cheater. I'll tell you what camelhumphairy, i'll sit out a season so you don't have to be so stressed out and build a stupid cheater, you are just gonna crash it anyway so I say we all come down to your shop and beat on it with sledge hammers.

I thought it just had to be made from the same materials used in the day but the look had to be in the spirit of the era... looks legal to me.
