Q&A: Where can I buy used bicycle parts in bulk?

Question by Vampire Cow: Where can I buy used bicycle parts in bulk?
Does anyone know where Ebay sellers get bicycle parts? There are sellers that sell up to 30 used high-end bike parts on Ebay every day for thousands of dollars. Where do they manage to get so much of such good hardware? Do bike shops offload it on them?
It looks like a lot of work, but I’m thinking it would be a great side job.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Does your town have a miscellaneous junk yard? I’d go scour the yard for bike and car parts, as well as anything else you could foresee yourself fixing up or taking apart, and see how much you can get for it. Also, try freecycle.org where people will donate random items they have for no cost, just so it doesn’t go to waste. Great way to make money is selling fixed up stuff from freecycle at yard sales and that.
