NOW SORTED! THANKS EVERYBODY!

Building a classic road bike with classic components.

Looking for a 1960-1990's steel frame, size 54cm (approx).

I prefer
+ blue color (but other colours can be considered too)
+ good condition (i.e. straight frame)
+ lugged construction (but feel free to offer fillet brazed too)
+ quality tubing
+ light weight
+ BSA bottom bracket threads
+ matching fork
+ 53-54cm c-c top tube would be perfect, 55cm is the biggest I'll go for.
+ original paintwork and decals (but resprayed might be ok too)

I'm not so keen on
- bad condition/dents
- touring geometry
- crazy 90's paint scheme
- french BB treads etc.

Have had a few offers but unfortunately all frames offered have been too big.

So. Have made some minor changes to my requirements.

Already looked at that many times.
Unfortunately I want to use 700c wheels!
But thanks anyway.

Anyone else?

I have, in the garage:

An Elswick Turbo12
A Raleigh thing (no idea what the model is as it has had a respray at some point)
Another Raleigh thing (ditto)
A Mtrax Ti/steel lugged thing

Any of them any good?

That looks very very nice. But original paintwork and decals would be great. Edited this in the first post. But good luck with the sale anyway!

So. Still looking. Anyone got anything else?

NOW SORTED!!!
