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!

FAIR? Who cares about fair? The world isn't fair. Truth is fair. Is it fair that you were born like this? NO! They're not expecting somebody like you in there, Ox. They're expected one of these slugs. You're different. You're weird. You're a mutant. You're a killer. You're a trained killer. You're a LEAN... MEAN... FIGHTING... MACHINE!

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
