    The rear dropout will be fine if it gets trapped by two plates, not just tied together on one side.

    Got it inexpensively, but it wears a powder coat finish.

    Weight will not tell all I think.
    Reynolds made 531 in 3/10 ga tubing in the 70's.
    Very light beyond the butted sections.

    Some of the Super Vitus tube sets were very light too.
