    Heavier mild carbon steel. French, which may lead to bb issues. Basic bike-boom bike.

    Fillet brazed cro.moly. Looks to be a one-piece-crank, I'd stay away.

    Awesome bike, Reynolds 531.. I wouldn't even think about converting it though, although it does look pretty beat to hell.

    Not bad. Would make a decent conversion.

    I'd go with this before converting a bike like the ones above...

    Not bad, I'd keep it intact as-is though.

    This is the one I would go with for a grocery hauler. Set up for cantilevers, racks, bottles, etc.

    Also, posting your ebay finds on here is a bad idea... lots of people looking for frames.
