I have found most of my local scores through Craigslist, and I am not in a bicycle collecting/hoarding area of the country.....I like to search for bicycles with multiple prefixes to see what people consider an "old" bicycle. I will search all prefixes: Old, Vintage, Classic, Original, Antique, Collector, Rare, One-of-a-kind, sometimes it produces a hit, and sometimes not. The constant searching via garage/estate sales is a common practice, and a good bet, most people do not know the value or significance of their old bikes they are trying to turn into some $. My last craigslist score was four months ago, and I would expect something else to show up pretty soon, the good stuff seems to flow to the surface 3 or 4 times a year, you just have to be ready to accept it. Search on!
