Not sure of the weight, but it was easy enough to pick the whole thing up and carry it

I'm a little OCD that way, things wont be put back on the bike until their spruced up , dont like putting rusty bolts back on, others i will sand down and paint.

For a rough reference my NC 29 bone stock was 392 pounds with a full tank on a certified digital scale. She's down to 380 full now with a GF racing full system and a small things taken off.

Re: CBR400rr NC23 Resto

Your build is impressive, i think the Nc23 chassis cleaner looking than the 29 by far.
