I'm looking for a bike to do some long-distance touring on. The size I'm after is either 58 or 59cm and at least 531 tubing or similar. I've got a budget of £250. Anyone got anything?

Cheers

I have this all stripped down for restoration, the original chromed steel wheels will be replaced with modern alloy wheels and 28 mm tyres, frame powder coated dark green and new headset and bottom bracket. fitted with rear rack.
price around 200 depending on final parts bill!

I am also looking for a touring bike now! A bike in 54-56cm. Budget is up to £450 but would prefer to go as low as possible, if you include racks and panniers and mudguards, I would be tempted to up my budget.

Many thanks in advance.

Not mine - but on the size limit you're looking for?
