Torpado Superlight, in their c.1983 catalog (, quoted at 18.7 lbs. Photo: Specs:

Mine is a 52cm from 1984, completely built up with Super Record components, water bottle cage, and somewhat light Nadax FAG bottom bracket, and Fiamme Ergal rims. It weighs in at 19lbs: < 84_Superlight_52PrlBlue/>

Modern bike weights are usually quoted without pedals, I'd think a vintage lightweight might get under 19 lbs without pedals. Pedals, toeclips, and straps probably add up to close to a pound.

that's a really cool PY-10, but I think no bike in the on-topic era weighed less than 19 lbs in its production configuration. In fact, the catalogue page you display on wooljersey actually says (9-9.5 kg), which would be 19.8 - 20.9 lbs.

Can ANY CR members name an on-topic catalogue bike that tipped the scales in the 18 lbs range ?? That's an interesting question for the list.
