Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - I need a Junk Bike...where can I find one?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
So i'm back home for my winter break from school, and i'm getting pretty depressed without a bike to use. So i wanted to know if anyone in the NYC or NJ area knows where i may find like a thrift store or a junk yard or something where i might be able to pick up a bike. I tried to google it, but had no luck...any help would be great. Thanks guys

I don't live anywhere remotely close but I would suggest looking to see
if there is a bike kitchen nearby, try thrift stores, craigslist, etc.
You may find something cheap that ain't junk even.
ppl throw them in the garbadge every day of the week.

check the nearest thrift stores once a week and look in the dumpsters at bike shops

You can even make it into a fixed gear.
Unfortunately, the link to that project escapes me. But I think it worked out okay.
