Yes great frame that vintage of the Protrax. I got one from the Bankrupt Surplus guy on eBay last year. Unfortunately it never had the original paint on it, only a matt black powder coat.
They have got a nice quality steel feel to them. Mines built up for touring though complete with butterfly bars.

Great looking bike Pickle. 8)

I have one of these built up as my commuter, frame was NOS from Bankruptsurplus on ebay for £19.99 - bargainous and comes with a whole heap of smiles per mile - really does handle well!
