Anyone know where I can get a Montague frame?

I'd quite like to have a Montague, but the low-end bikes are kind of crappy and the high-spec versions cost a fortune. I already have most of the parts required, and the massive prevalence of lightly used MTB gear means that the few remaining bits are fantastically cheap. Does anyone know where I could buy a Montague MTB frame - new or used? Could I order it as parts through a dealer?

Incidentally, feel free to PM me with offers.

Somebody was selling some on eBay last year for $200. I forget exactly what the deal was, they weren't claimed to be Montagues but looked exactly like the Paratrooper frame. I watched some of the auctions but never saw one sell.
I went a different route, got a Fuji "Marlboro" folder from cragslist.

Foldingbikes.biz offers framesets for Montagues (link), but they're pretty expensive. Free shipping though

Do you know how much difference - if any - there is between the el-cheapo Montague and the paratrooper frameset? Beyond the fork, they appear quite similar - and MTB forks aren't hard to find secondhand.

I wish I could find one at that price.
