    Yard sales, Craigslist, curbside on trash day...

    It's amazing how well a POS can ride if you just give it some TLC. It's also amazing how easily I can persuade myself to polish a turd.

    Check out the local Good Will or other thrift stores. Kids don't want road bikes, so they sell cheap. A friend of mine got a classic Bianchi with Campagnolo gear for under $100.

    craigslist.
    goodwill/etc bikes almost always need a bit of work to make rideable, but there are always deals to be had on good old CL.

    Frame fork and stem look a lot like my '92 Hard Rock. Did you do something to the dropouts to make it SS?

    To the OP: Also check ebay. You can do a search for local sales (within any mile radius of your zip code) and contact the seller to see if he would rather sell locally. Otherwise, craigslist is probably your best bet.
    It's a long way to the top, if you wanna rock n' roll...
