If I recall, the tires were almost melted onto and off of the rims onto the spokes, and lots of rust. He cleaned it up a lot before he took the pics, I think. Its definitely restorable, just a lot of work.

I too saw this bike and tried to talk him down ( its in really bad shape) to no avail... I have talked to him a couple of times about it since then. It would be a really cool project. It's a shame that it's leaving the city
That's right. Horrible shape--a real piece of junk. Don't anybody outside of KC risk a bid on it.
Actually, Jeremy, (IMHO) most of what it needs is cosmetic plus logo/lettering restoration. Mechanically it seemed fairly sound but it could use a major tune up. "Really bad shape" is not the way I would characterize its condition. Was there something I overlooked?
