I bought 6 bikes for a total of $160 in our community yard sale. I gave one away (a little barbie type with something like 16" wheels) to the yard saler's daughter. She was so happy & I had just paid the girl scouts $5 for the bike. She promised to wear her helmet.
Meanwhile, I'm in swap, strip, clean, adjust, and post on craigslist mode. I found the first two bikes in the first 10 minutes. One, a 56cm Specialized lugged steel road bike, has full Dura-Ace 8 speed grupo and Dura-Ace hubs.
The end goal is a slightly upgraded fleet and cash on hand for my 86 Paramount purchase
