It pains me to see people bringing those pieces of crap in.

The headsets will be shot, wheels totally messed up, chain and tranny toast from total lack of maintenance, cables rusted in place, etc. When the wrenches start explaining what would need to be done to do just the basic stuff the cheapest way possible, the customer thinks it's a scam
