WTT: '95 Trek 750 19" for larger touring frameset

EDIT: Trek officially lists this as a 21" (c-t), but it measures 19" (c-c)

I have been looking fruitlessly for months for a full touring frame in ~59cm (c-c). Because I'm on a budget and have most of the parts I need already, I've been looking for a vintage frameset. However, these seem to be selling for a premium.

I did stumble across this frame, yesterday. While not a true touring frame, it's exactly what I'm looking for...only 4 inches too short. It was a good price, though, so I snatched it up in hopes that I might be able to trade it.

So...if you have a spare touring frame, or are in the same situation I am with the wrong sized frame, please let me know!

I was surprised at the quality and versatility of this frame. Double eyelets rear, single front, 2 water bottle braze-ons, canti bosses for 700c wheels, fender mounts at both seat and chainstay bridges, and low rider rack braze-ons on the fork! High quality double butted True Temper OX tubes, and a really gorgeous deep blue paint. I haven't seen a Trek yet with a poor paint job. There was some minor surface rust on the BB shell (see photo) but I treated it with naval jelly. It's been completely touched up with clear enamel, waxed, and the inside tubes have been treated with Weigle's Framesaver.
