Yes all the time. It's fun for me and quite habit forming.

Recently:

Winchester 70's era. for the bluemels fenders. Bridgestone Spica 1983, for the Alloy wheel set and "Randnner" bars. Austro-Daimler late '70's damaged frame, for all the cool parts it had

There have also been many times that I've been tempted but couldn't justify bringing home a hunk of 25" steel for a worn leather saddle or some such.
