Man, that raleigh...WHAT A BABE.
Still waiting on some things to post my current steel bikes that I've been eager to post up.
But the road one is still missing some things. Super excited about these, but I'm going to have to hold off on sharing them with the world for now.
Just need to get a bb situated for my track, and a stem/bars and saddle for the road.
My track seems to be pretty light for steel. Reynolds 853

15.5lbs last time I weighed it when it had RB021s on it instead of the compact drops. Mix of Reynolds and Columbus.

I ride 59 c-c steel bikes.
Both my Colnago's built on DA weigh in at around 20lbs.
Not heavy. Not light.
My track bike built on DA weighs in at around 18lbs.
Not heavy. Not light.
I dont see the point in a weight weenie steel bike. Cost less to lose weight myself :)

I ride smaller frames, anywhere from 50-54 CM, so my lightest steel bike is around 18, and heaviest is around 23. Some of my lightest steel frames have super thin tubing (Tange Infinity) and are just wayyyy too noodly for their own good.

I just recent weighed my Bareknuckle. Its 17.5 without brakes and 18.5 with brakes and hoods/levers.

I'm sure I could lessen it even more with lighter wheels/tires/tubes and carbon cockpit/saddle/fork...
