I found this last summer at seaford tip in the dumpster pulled it out found it had no rear mech hanger and one non driveside chainset arm attached.

It is a very small size around 15 inches max..well today I decided that I could either sell it on or do something with it so I have acquired a new rear mech hanger and with random parts I have in the shed I am planning to build it..just not sure what forks to put on it, any suggestions welcome.. also i have alot of early 90's deore, maybe a bit old for a 99 build...

so far I have a

syncros seatpost

flite saddle

titanium quill stem

ringle oversize headset

deore dx chainset nos

araya rm17 rims on deore dx hubs nos

deore front and rear mechs

deore combi shifters

What size is the seatpost?
The Gringo took a 27.2 - but those rear dropouts look like the ones on an 02.
Any chance the seatpost might be 31.6?
