Would it be a bad thing to build an aluminum motorcycle frame?

I will be starting a project bike within the next month. I have a 1973 rigid shovelhead frame. I want to cut a little weight. So, I was thinking about building an exact replica of the frame I already have, but I was going to use aluminum tubing. I plan on using 1" O.D. .5" I.D. tubing. From an engineers point of view, would the aluminum frame hold up to the weight and stress as well as the steel frame? Or at least hold up just fine?

Aluminum tends to "work harden" from flexing. A frame made from aluminum would have to be super rigid to prevent this. That is something that is pretty difficult to do with tubing.

Secondly, have you done the math? I am not sure you will really be saving that much weight.
