Wanted word: What do you call bike remains on the sidewalk?(3 posts)

Wanted word: What do you call bike remains on the sidewalk?Brian C.

You know what I'm talking about: An old, rusting frame tied to a hitching post or light pole. Occasionally, it will have a bent tire, but usually it's just the frame - no seat, no fork, not even the handle bars - just lying there forlornly on the sidewalk.
The other day, I noticed an old Bianchi in this condition. At one time it must have been someone's pride and joy, but now it's just a banged up frame, no fork but with a mountain tire still attached. How it got that way and why it remains there shall forever be a mystery

There's gotta be a word or phrase for this:
Sidewalk flotsam.
Cyclescrap

Any suggestions?
