The benefit of brazing is that a large diameter (but thin-walled) tube can be used, which may be no heavier that the original solid bar, but will be more rigid - the light tube will be durable enough using the brazing process.
examples of cars using brazed components are Lotus, Cooper (all of the tube chassis were brazed. Many Formula Jr. cars, as well as Morgan. It works.
