Why would this be a bad idea?
The American Choppers guys did their "Liberty" bike with a copper-finished chrome, mimicking the statue.
A copper frame, *that* would be a bad idea.
Wow, sounds cool if you can keep the copper from corroding - or maybe that would look cool. hmmm.
First, lightening, of course.
Second, metal recyclers. They risk their lives to steal live copper power lines, so ripping off a copper tubing bicycle would be a natural for them.
