What is your inseam? My guess on your sizxe is anywhere from around 56cm to 60cm. Do a search of this forum on frame sizing, there are a lot of theories, ideas, comments, on it. Be sure to search by relevance.
As far a building up a bike from a frame, I have found so many sweet vintage bikes (complete) for around $100 each, that I would personally not build one up from a frame.
My last addition to the fleet cost me $165 on ebay. You would be hard pressed to build one up from a frame for anywhere near that cost. FWIW: This bike has a 22 inch frame (thats about a 56 cm size), I am 5-11 with really short legs.
