If you have a cassette hub, I have experience with the ghetto engineering required to lock it up. Simply open it up, and flip one of the pawls. Reassemble everything and enjoy your ghetto fixie. That's what I did to my beater around-campus bike when I got bored. You probably should run brakes with this. Mine seems to be going strong but who knows.
I'm not saying this is a good way to experienced fixed gear. But for a grand total of zero dollars, I thought it was fun.
