Thanks, Cyclotoine. I always liked fastback seatstays. Though it was a bit of a pain to miter.

I'd like to thank Velonomad for inspiring me to craft my own frame, fork and wheelset.

Any of the steel bikes at Wallmart.

1018 is just plain carbon steel. It would be found on only the cheapest bikes.

Grand Prix wasn't ever 531 to my knowledge.

Mine is hi-ten. Later ones maybe 501 or 502

Try classic and vintage (my normal haunt) and someone will help out.
