VeloSport Alpin Touring Bike Frame weight Question :S

hi all
as my first post i have a simple question .. that i havn't found answered anywhere
a old friend of mine is ready to give me a old

apin velosport bike
that he claims doesnt roll and is slowly eaten by rust
but the frame is still decent and the wheels are good

so i was hopping to turn that thing into a nice singlespeed or fixie

i was just wondering ... how much do that thing weight ? ( frame + fork ONLY) does anyone has a close estimate frame size is 58
