Hi folks

On the hunt for a half decent road bike frame and forks, for a friends Singlespeed project.

Criteria would be:
55cm Ctt (or thereabouts)
Horizontal dropouts
No worries about paint
700c wheel
Budget is about £100

Show me what youve got!

I have a number, all cheapish.

1) a Raleigh (unknown model, it's been painted at some point)
2) a gas-piper Elswick Hopper turbo-12 frame (this was my fixie before I got hold of a better frame)
3) A Carlton Continental (currently in Dave Yates' workshop, I need to go and collect it). Note this is '79 model so has Raleigh threading for BB and headset and the paintwork, optimistically, can be called challenging.
4) The frame that replaced my Elswick Hopper (painted, with hammerite, BRG with gold lugs). Has a saw cut on the NDS chainstay, but that doesn't affect the handling or anything (I have done a fair distance on it and kept an eye out for cracking, non seen although a short bead of weld would sort it out)

I could do any of them for £40, all *should* be the same size, i.e. 56cm (the right size for me @ 6' tall), but if you need me to check just give me a shout.
