I'm struggling to find vintage bicycles for my projects...

Old 10sps and road/racing bikes are what I'm after. I like restoring them and converting them to singlespeed sometimes.

I need help finding them!

Gratefully received!

Ebay ,gumtree Friday ad. There just A few places your local tip! That's always a good place if you haven't got too much pride to ask for them! Also go on face book and search for groups that offer people the chance to offer there unwanted stuff for free I your local area one of the ones near me is called stuff for free in Bedford. Hope that's good to ya

If you know anyone who does building work or similar where they are around derelict houses, ask them to keep an eye out. People have all sorts tucked away. That's where all my recent projects have come from and all FOC^_^
