Steel, I don't really know more. It's not the lightest frame, but definitely not the heaviest either.

The frame was made for 110 mm rear hub, someone has modified the frame for a normal 120 mm hub. When I got the frame, the welds were covered with black tape, no rust luckily though.

This one was actually made in Kharkov, Ukraine. There were a few cool bikes made in former Soviet Union, just google "Takhion" :)
