My first thought was Litespeed Ultimate but the tubes on the ultimate are not round like yours. Could be an Airbourne.

I had one of those mirrors in the 70's along with a copy of the Desiderata on the wall :)

Is it a touring frame with those rear dropouts...

Most likely generic Taiwanese / Chinese from the likes of HiLite / Xi'an Titanium / Titan Product. The curved seatstays and the tagged-on eyelets on the rear hangers suggest Xi'an - I've bought a few frames from them.

Should add, new frames are $600 so don't pay over the odds.
