    Has someone ever seen one of these before!?

    Just picked this up off someone on craigslist for 50 bucks. Never heard of the brand Chicago, maybe someone else can tell me a little about it?

    Yeah it does, I can't find anything about it online. It's definitely an import, but haven't found anything else. Gonna take it to my shop tomorrow. If anything it'll be a project to play with.

    I wouldn't waste any time or any more money on that thing.

    I wouldn't put another dime into it. Gift it to someone less fortunate.

    There is a reason you've never heard of the brand. It's isn't one. Keep some street cred and for all that is holy, don't take this into your shop.

    Like suggested, get it in working order, and find some kid who needs a bike and GIVE this to them. It's a crime to take money for this POS. The original CL'er who SOLD you this "bike" should be ashamed.

    Next case, please.
