Hi all - I've got a Carlton Corsair but it's got a pretty nasty dent in one of the seatstays. I'm looking to get a new frame and fork thus:

* Very large size - my Carlton is 64 seattube and 57 top-tube. I don't want to go any longer on the top-tube, but I can go a little shorter on the seattube (62 is about as small as I'd like to ride) - I'd consider (for example) a 62x56 or 62x57
* Clearance for 28c tyres with mudguards (so also must have mudguard eyelets)
* Full 531 tubing or similar
* No big dents!

I'm not fussed about the condition of the paint. Something like a Gazelle Champion Mondiale (the cheaper variants, obviously) would be ideal. Budget is around £100 - but like I said, I'm not bothered about paint so I'd rather save my money and get an ugly-looking frame!

If anyone's got another Carlton in that size it saves me from buying a new set of decals...

Maybe you'r looking for this Gazelle frame: seattube 65 cm c-t, toptube 57 cm, c-c. It's not a lightweight, but a solid Gazelle. 65 euros postage included

Size looks good - what tubing is it made from though?
