    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?
