I am looking to do a FG/SS bike for myself. I don't think I'll ride a ton so I want to get into it for fairly cheap. The local market on anything that could be converted is crazy. The tri state has a lot of bike people so searching on Craigslist has been really hard. Prices are just too damn high. Anyways there has been a Schwinn World Sport abandoned on my block for over a year. Tire are tacoed, chain is rusted and off but the thing is locked up. I went to the police station and the guy told me that the City cuts them off from time to time and either junks them or auctions them. He then surprised me by saying "Just cut the lock, no one will care". I had thought of doing this myself but now that he told me to I think it's fine. Here is the problem, the bike has one of these on it http://www.ems.com/product/index.jsp...FUGk4AodihMAEg. Probably the reason the City hasn't cut it off, this thing is nuts. I could go buy a bolt cutter but it wouldn't do the job I don't think. Any ideas on how to get it off short of a grinder? It's a free bike if I can figure this out.
