Carlton did a number of Mixte frames, there are usually ones on ebay (Courette). There are gaspipers and 531 in the range, and, if you go for pre-1960 or post 1980 then you should get English threads.

These Viscount Sebring are pretty sweet. I bought one for my wife, and I rode it the other week. Great bike. The same set up as the men's version except the frame.

Raleigh Royale/Royal Lady 531 are/were nice bikes with the metalic sparkly blue paintwork, the older variant with orange equally so.

Dawes Londoner 531 was a nice green (black also maybe) with decent lugs
Viscount I
Quinn Brothers made a few non mixte ladies which were light/nice to ride.

Here's a very long forum thread about Mixte framed bikes

I hadn't seen the Dancelli, thanks for the link! I'm not sure it would suit though - the frame might be a bit racey for my missus, and the gipimme group with tubs wouldn't be suitable, so I'd be left with the problem of finding another frame to hang it on :lol:

For one reason or another, I'm not sure the project is going to go ahead though, not this year at least...
