WANTED TO BUY: Steel-framed 56 - 58 cm road bike

Apologies if this is on the wrong board. . . . but I've just completed an enjoyable restoration on a friend's 1985 Nishiki road bike.

I'd like another project like this, this time to keep and ride.

So if you've got an old 56 to 58 cm steel-framed bike gathering dust in the garage, PM me with a phone number. $50 to $100 for a rust bucket with working BB and headset. I live near Torrance but will come and pick up anywhere in the Los Angeles, Beach Cities or Long Beach area. Thanks.

Look around on craigslist.org for bikes in your area.

sorry my stuff is well maintained, so way above that, and not rusty. Go to CL, or your LBS for trade-ins.

Will do. My sense is that there are hundreds of bicycles sitting around in garages. Many of them are potential restorations. But it also makes sense that those who subscribe to this list would not have such bikes lying around. :-) Thanks.

I was checking out my father-in-law's garage yesterday and he has THREE old bikes hanging from the rafters. I was thinking of sprucing one up for my daughter, who is a reluctant rider.

But your notion that there are likely tons of unused bikes hanging in garages is probably accurate and they probably aren't particularly rusty either, unless they live near the coast. Garage sales are probably your best bet. Even beater bikes on CL are terribly over priced around here.

It costs as much to ship a bicycle as you're willing to pay.

Go on craigslist.
