Thanks for the thread OP!

I suppose no bike collection would be complete without a Flying Pigeon in the lineup. I have seen videos from China that show scrapyard operations, and you can see FP after FP (or similar) being ground to bits with giant grinders. The entire bike is dropped in, no parts/components are removed. Just shredded into potato chip (crisps for the UK folks) size pieces. The amount of waste is staggering (worldwide, not just China!).

I considered one as a novelty, but the thought lasted no more than a few minutes.

Definitely see all the parallels between the FP and the Trabant.
