Another thing to keep in mind is how much of the $400 bicycle you're actually keeping.

A good paint job can be worth quite a bit. However, if you're planning on brazing on canti-posts, or making other major modifications, then might as well find one that needs a full repaint. Water bottle cages? The Grand Jubilee bikes can go from as low as $100 or so up to your price of $400 or so.

Oh, here you go, perhaps you could bring your wife onboard with the project if you went with this route.

I think the Grand Touring is one step down from the Grand Jubilee, but still not a bad base bike/frame. There are also Grand Jubilee Mixtes out there, but they are more rare.
