1988 (maybe) frame fork and bars - No clue what it is

Anyone?  Anyone?  Bueller...  Bueller...

Department store bike?  Or something better?

Serial - LY8803070118

I thought the screw in pegs were interesting.  But saw a lot of these on the old Columbia freestyle bikes when I was a kid.

Has the frame stand under the seat.  And the downtube has the "bend" sort of like a GT Performer (no bologna slice).

Euro bike?  I am clueless.  Thanks in advance for any info!

I don't have the bike handy.  The guy trying to sell it to me shot me the photos.  Not sure about additional markings but I can ask.  It's been spray bombed black so when I actually saw it I didn't look that hard at it.  Found the frame style pretty interesting with the spin on pegs and the bend in the downtube.  But was figuring dept store as I haven't been able to find a single bike on here that matches up.

Probably dept. store, if you can get it for the right price buy it though, still a cool bike smile Looks like it has a GT scooter stem on it also

I think he's asking a bit too much for a dept store frame.  was hoping somebody could confirm so I knew what price to throw at him.

did notice the stem.  reminds me of the redline stems from BITD.  if it was I would have snagged it up immediately.

The dropouts are weird, this looks like a knock off of a late 80's GT performer


Okay, what would Joe do at a time like this? He'd kill everybody and smoke some cigarettes.

the downtube mimic's a GT performer, I'm not good with freestyle but just compare
