Im looking to kit my boy out with an MTB as he approaches 13...ive loads of parts for a build knocking about but im looking for a 16" frame to start the build off

one of those unbranded alloy ones that were for sale all over would be perfect, not looking to spend loads

really want something with 1"1/8 headtube, and canti bosses..

anyone out there got anything unwanted?

How about this 1991 Saracen Limited Edition 16"? Has 1 & 1/8'' headset, original forks, bars, stem, bar ends, internal brake cables, bb, seatpost, Saracen comfort saddle but not the bottle cage now. Paint isn't great but a nice project & only want £20 + cost of postage - need to make space.

There are two nice Orange O2 frames on Ebay, a black one and a silver one, 17 size, (which are 15.25 ctc) ones £75 one is £80 both Canti only, these would be ideal and very light too.
