    Nice find!
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    Well, I can see why they threw it out. How can you ride a bike without pedals? The thing is WORTHLESS!

    Be advised that Carbolite tubing is not carbon fiber.
    You might should consider lubing the chain maybe.

    Not to be a downer but you might want to give the local PD a call to make sure that it isn't stolen. Awful nice bike to be just thrown in the trash.

    Excellent fine! Late 70s - early 80s, maybe?
