******* Wanted **********

85-95 steel MTB frame (or + forks, or possibly whole bike?) to convert into on-road/off-road/adventure tourer. Probably a 20" frame as I'm 6' tall. Would like:

- as many braze-ons and fixings as possible to avoid an expensive trip to the frame guru if I can

- strong rather than too flexy as I might load her up front and back sometimes and don't want her to start wobbling when going downhill at 40MPH

- longish chainstays to avoid heel strike

- all threads clean and no cracks or crash damage but tatty paint and small dings OK as I plan a shot blast/powder coat

- nice tubing (531, Tange) and/or lugged would be a bonus

- if frame only would be nice if it took 1 1/8" steerer to give more choice on forks

Doing this on a tight budget so no perfect collectors pieces please unless you're feeling very charitable!

Also recommendations on makes/models gratefully received: Marin, Trek, Specialised, Saracen, Peugeot?
