Where to find medium sized steampunk gears and sprockeys in So Cal?

A friend and I are going to start making steampunk lamps and medium to large sized pieces.  The problem is that there are no bicycle graveyards in Los Angeles.  Any ideas where to go?  I was thinking pic-a-part for some stuff, but I dont know if they have bike parts.

Old clocks!

Try thrift stores, boot sales antique stores (ask if they have any irreparable clocks rusting out back) and even (drum roll............) clock shops!

Ebay also has some interesting results when you search for "old clock repairs", "old gears" or "big gears".

Find local bike shops and ask them what happens to junk bikes and where you might find some. Chances are they get scooped up pretty quick by junk dealers. I'm sure there are organizations near you that also seek out old bikes to refurbish and give to the needy or resell. So you may have a hard time getting the parts you want for little or nothing.
