Aluminium Frame and swinging arm

#1

If you had unlimited money
How much weight could you save by replacing the Original Frame and swinging arm from steel to aluminium on a VF1000Fe 1984 .
perfect replica and cost ?

If it were a perfect replica in terms of dimensions as well as appearance then you’d end up with a weaker and more flexible frame.

If cost doesn’t matter, maybe use carbon fibre or titanium? Use Lithium for the battery.

But it won’t reduce much weight. By block is the engine.

My vf1000 has an ally swingarm anyway so just the frame is steel so I would think that the weight saving would be equal to a good sunday pub lunch washed down with a pint of best bitter, sooo to save the weight just dont eat so much before you ride the vf and save all that money for more fuel to ride it more.
