    Used Bike Shop?

    Are there any shops in So-cal that do used bikes and parts? There used to be a place called Vintage Bikes in Stanton, but I think they are out of biz. Im looking for a place that has old used parts.

    You know when your putting a bike together for a buddy and it needs a crank. A $15 used crank would be fine, and your buddy won't but new. I need a place that has the $15 used crank.

    Thanks!

    There's a place on El Cajon Blvd /College Ave (near SDSU) that sells used bikes & parts. I don't know the name of the shop though.

    Cool! Thanks.

    How about some places relatively close to Orange County? I suppose I should have mentioned that. Worst case here we end up with a list of shops in ALL of social.

    Thanks Again!

    yeah that's your best bet. I used to work at a shop and there ain't NO MONEY in selling used parts or bikes.

    While not a shop...Craigslist and Ebay have bikes and parts listed all the time. That's where I go when I need something old and cheep.

    Maybe one of these places can help someone out in LA. No OC though.
