Craigslist the way to go. Check it daily, look up the year/bike/review online as you see ones that you like, etc. I don't recommend older bikes (pre 1992) if you're not a tinkerer or if you need a reliable commuter -- since the bike might run great, but some parts may take a while to arrive. That said, if you don't mind some greasework, just go for what grabs you by the nads.

+1 Craigslist is free, local, and no B.S. It worked for me more than once.

Thats the advice my dad gave me before I came to college. I've never heard it applied to motorcycles, though.
