Scandium hardtail

A customer saw the 25th anniversary frame and was inspired to get this frame painted in a very similar scheme. The panels are candy apple red instead of the coke-can red of the original. In this photo the colors look a little dark-I just managed to get the photo shot before going home late in the day.
Since the panels were red the headset and seat collar needed to be the same-fortunately the color is a common anodized shade and the whole effect is pretty nice.

That's pretty awesome. What did the approximate weight end up being on that frame? Also care to give a brief explanation on the drilling on the uni-seatstays? I assume it is simply for weight reduction or does it serve a secondary purpose?

The seat stay yoke is drilled and relieved to cut down on weight and the thinning makes it easier to weld. The frame is a little under 3 1/2 lbs.
