I'm a little confused. What is it that you're really looking for?
If you're looking for a new bike with modern frame geometry and that undefinable steel ride, step up to a frame that's made with one of the better new steel alloys.
If you're wanting cheap, get one of the Chinese aluminum clone frames. You might not be thrilled but I doubt you'll be seriously disappointed either. They are what they are.
If you're wanting classic steel ride characteristics, cheap, and maybe a little bit of snob appeal, go used.
