Magna eh? I got one of them. Can't wait to get rid of it. It is tremendously heavy - so much so that I got an older Trek 830 frame (in the process of getting all the parts now) to replace it on the infrequent occasions when I ride off-road. I can appreciate you not wanting to toss it, but finding someone who doesn't have a bike, and would make some use of it, or donating it would be preferable to spending money to end up with a 40 lb tank instead of a 45 lb tank.
I'm sure others will have other opinions, and you may have valid reasons for improving it, but I'd suggest giving it away, and finding a better used bike for your winter riding.
In search of what to search for.
