    Best place to find an old Bianchi frame?

    i'm planning on building my first fixed-gear this winter and was hoping to find a vintage bianchi frame on the cheap. other than ebay, is there anyplace i should be looking? also, what sort of gearing should a first timer be looking at?

    garage sales, thrift stores, craigslist, pawn shops (if you don't care about karma), used bike shops....

    gearing: find a single gear combo you like on your multi-speed bike and buy fixed parts for something close to that.

    Available Bianchis for cheap?
    There's probably an alternate dimension you could look for one in.
    Unsafe at Any Speed.

    I was lucky enough to score an old Bianchi frame and fork for free from a teacher.
