Heavy compared to....what? The '88 'Leggera is listed at 21.5lbs, and I would suspect that any comparable SL/SP mix frame (if there were any) with a full Chorus and basic clinchers like the Ambrosios would weigh in at about the same. If you put some trick tubulars wheels and tires on it you might savea pound or two but I suspect the weight is comparable to any similar bike of the day.
One morning you wake up, the girl is gone, the bikes are gone, all that's left behind is a pair of old tires and a tube of tubular glue, all squeezed out"
