Large steel ss frame

Finding a steel 26" ss frame seems to be impossible locally, so I'm expanding my search online.

I'm after a large(18-19.5") steel ss frame. Something like an Inbred, Jamis Exile SS 26, older Kona Units/Explosifs, Cotic Simple 26, etc.
I know i can use one of many tensioning methods on a vertical dropout frame, but if I'm going to this effort I'd rather get something that fits what I'm looking for.
So:
18-19.5" frame(Depends how you're measuring)
1-1/8" or tapered headtube
130/135mm spacing
adjustable dropouts be it sliders or track ends
disc or v mounts
If it has an odd size seatpost, would be nice if you could include one.
I recently saw a pic of what I believe was a 2003 Kona Unit and loved it.

Located in Canada so shipping will be necessary.

2004 Indy Fab Deluxe SS frame and forks in 853 of interest? It’s classed as a 16” but that’s c to c. It’s identical c to c seat tube, top tube and head tube to 19” Konas.
Disc only with an ebb, takes a 29.4 post but I could include a shim to 27.2.

Pictures are from last year but I can take some close detail shots.
It has 135 rear dropouts, 1 1/8 headset.
