Stripped Naked

I finished removing the front end tonight. Now it's just a frame and a welded sub-frame. The frame feels a lot lighter than it looks. I'm guessing around 30 lbs, but I will weigh it to be sure.
Why strip the frame completely? Isn't that overkill, just for an EV conversion?
Well, now the fun begins: reverse engineering the bike. The next few weeks will be spent measuring the frame geometry in order to build a 3D cad model.
