I want a frame to fix

I've been checking the local Craigslist and not finding much. I'm not much of an Ebay'er. Where else would you look to find one in the Jacksonville, FL area? I'm looking for an old road frame and I'm pretty sure I can do all of the work on it myself. Suggestions?

also, ask your neighbors, you'd be surprised what gems may be hiding in their garages/attics!

Thrift stores around here are stingy. An old road bike (even crappy ones) go for about $75 to $100 and they won't take them if they aren't in working condition.

I have a sweet Bianchi "fixer-upper" if you're interested.

Are you willing to ship it? Most won't even spring for the shipping..... I think I could probably use one of those screws holding the ring on the crank.
