WTB: Cheap beater quality canti equipped touring frame

Yep, I said it: cheap (or at least affordable)
I've moved three frames/bike onto other homes recently, and I'd like to build a commuter/tourer.
Size; 59-61cm c-c seat tube. Longer top tubes are better for me.
Paint is completely unimportant. Dents, damage, and stuck components are out.
The more braze ons, the better.
I'd love a Trek to go along with my two Columbus framed Treks, but I know that's probably out of my range at the moment.
What's out there?

Real cheap, kinda cheap?

I'm waiting on arrival of an "upgrade" (LOL actually older, but nicer Alan) on my cross bike so will soon be selling my Ridley aluminum cross frame. It would meet your size and brake criteria but maybe not price as I'll be looking in range of $250. Also not vintage (2006).

It'd have to be a tall one, but don't forget to check out a mid-80ish MTB if the right one crosses your path.

I have access to quite a few older MTB's, but they don't fit the image in my head for this build.

I'd keep your eyes peeled for a Trek 520. (No, you can't have mine. )

I have a Nishiki Riviera GT that I am thinking of selling. It's not a beater - the paint is very good and the main tubes are Tange Infinity with Mangaloy forks. It is larger than you asked for (62/63cm seat tube, 61cm top tube).

I have a 1983 Trek 720 that I need to unload which is your size . . . .

It's not quite beater quality, though,

I'm using a 1982 Trek 720 as my primary commuter; these bikes make great commuters.

If you could live with a 58cm there's a Miyata 610 out in the barn that needs a new home:

I have a 80's KHS tourer in 59/60cm (need to measure to be sure) that I need to sell. Its got a ton of braze-ons, canti brakes, nice lugged frame, etc. all the good stuff you'd expect from a nice 80's tourer.

If you're interested send me an email - alario (at) gmail.com
