That bike is a complete piece of crap, throw it away immediately before it infects the rest of the good bikes in San Diego. I'll give you the location of my trash can where I won't even charge you to deposit it!

Just for your information (althought now that you're dumping it at my house you won't need it), the frame is 1971 or '72 in all likelyhood. I had one like it in 1972 (can you tell I still miss it, it was involved in a crash and was never the same after the Eisentraut repair job) and the correct colors and decal graphics I will have on hand before too long. I'll show you the stuff if you bring me the frame to look at; come alone after dark, and leave your I.D. at home!

All kidding aside, I can help you but I might offer to trade you a Masi for it or something. Be ready.
