Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yes, it is probably pretty heavy.

I guess the real question is... is it actually a better value than just doing a modern build with an old frame? Pretty slack angles too. I would test ride one in a minute though.
