A suitable 59-60 (ctc) frame set for a 650b conversion. Ideally, I'm looking for a high end frame with tight brake clearances for 700c, accepting nutted brakes, somewhat relaxed geometry, definitely with braze-ons for fenders. Not to picky about nationality. French would be ideal, but open to any others (Japanese, English, American) as long as the tubing and construction is top end... condition not important, as this might be the ideal bike for a plain re-paint.
Because of the need for tight brake clearances and built for 700c, I'm guessing that an ideal frame would be late 70s or early 80s. Of course, if someone has a 650b frame that they'd like to trade, I'm open to that as well!
Have: Lots of nice older goodies. The parts bin is fairly flush. I'm sure that we could work something out....
