    I need a Junk Bike...where can I find one?

    So i'm back home for my winter break from school, and i'm getting pretty depressed without a bike to use. So i wanted to know if anyone in the NYC or NJ area knows where i may find like a thrift store or a junk yard or something where i might be able to pick up a bike. I tried to google it, but had no luck...any help would be great. Thanks guys

    I don't live anywhere remotely close but I would suggest looking to see
    if there is a bike kitchen nearby, try thrift stores, craigslist, etc.
    You may find something cheap that ain't junk even.

    Target.


    You can even make it into a fixed gear.
    Unfortunately, the link to that project escapes me. But I think it worked out okay.
