I bought 4 bikes recently at a police auction for $30. The beach cruiser and Diamondback were both
schweet. The 2 Huffys were like new. But fresh dog sh!t is also like new. Spent a couple hours
sprucing up the Diamondback, giving it a check over and tune up, and it's in great shape. Put an IRC
Mythos on the front, cleaned it up, did a little adjusting, put an old seat on it I had hanging up,
and it's ready to play in the dirt.
One other thing, check the websites of all local auction companies, and/or call and ask if they have
any bikes being auctioned.
