I weighed my 1941 New World W1M today. It is 36 lbs. What does your lightweight weigh?

Yeah my 51-53 Schwinn Lightweights are anything but light, haven’t weighed them but noticeably heavier than an average road bike.

It makes a difference and it's more accurate if you're naked while standing on the scale while holding the bike. :p

Thanks @Sven and @Jeff54 ! 36 lbs is not out of whack then. I can see how adding a few more gears and racks would add a couple more lbs. 19 lbs is insane and that Trek looks fast. I bet those wheels are a lot truer and present much less rolling resistance than the Kenda K23s on my beat up S6 rims. :p You can't hop the railroad trax like me though...

@SKPC Under 30 lbs is probably a good target for a modernized ride. Even with the Aluminum parts it's not easy I bet. Nice pics of the Hawthorne.

@GTs58 That's a sharp big frame bike. Just under 36 lbs is right in the sweet spot. Thanks for the close ups!
