We have not measured it yet, but we have calculated that it is about 135 kg (297,6 lbs).

It's a cool project, at least what I could learn from the English section of your blog.

Did you make that frame? The I-4 engine choice was predictable, but certainly makes sense. I like the venting system you installed in the seat.
