ebay is the shiznit. just search by zip code within driving distance so you can go look at the bike and negotiate in person. and be careful, its full of shady , but also some good deals. good luck and welcome!

p.s. i know how you feel, but try not to use the words infatuation and crotch in the same sentance...lol...it just sounds wrong.
