Bikes from the local police
So... I went this weekend to 3 large Goodwill/Salvation Army sites looking for bikes. I thought I might hit upon an old vintage or some beater to use to do the tour de neighborhood, but I didn't find the first bike in any of them.
Then as I was passing the local Cop Shop, I happened to see something shiny in the back fenced area, and took a long look. They have probably 100 bikes in lock-up, I suppose from recovering them from thefts, or finds, or whatever.
My question is this: Do most police have an auction or sale of some type to get rid of these. I wouldn't mind having a shot at one or two if there's something good in there.
Has anyone any experience in getting a recovered bike from the lawmen?
