found a bike

I literally found a bike in a dumpster at an apartment complex. It is the frame of a Specialized fatboy hemi mx. The only problem is it is rusted to hell! Is it worth doing anything to? It is extremely light.

Hit it with a hammer, if it breaks it was too weak anyway. If not, paint it back up and build a bike with it!

My safety is endangered anyway. This looks like a good race bike. It has a frame like a Haro Monocoque. The thing is the seatpost is rusted(welded?) to the frame.

yeah build a new bike with that thing. there's liquid rust remover stuff you can get to get that seatpost off. sand and scuff it down then prime it up and paint it. itll be as good as new... or you no... close to new i guess.

You can get this piece of junk camera from newegg for $16:

I have one, it's fairly good considering the price.
