    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.

    Two concernds:

    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.
