Raleigh Grand Prix vs Trek 760

Hey guys, I'm building my first single-speed and my local bike frame search has ended in these two frames.

Raleigh Grand Prix
-$75
-2030 high carbon steel frame
-made sometime in the 80's

OR

Trek 760
-$200
-Reynolds 531c steel
-1985

Alright... so both bike frames are my size, but I'm completely new to bikes and bike frames and I don't know which one to buy. Is the Reynolds 531c steel worth the extra 125? I'm trying to build a quality bike but both frames seem to have fans, thanks for your input!


best,
Will

If its just for a SS then get the Grand Prix. The Trek deserves to be a geared bike.
