You might want to be sure you are buying a full ChroMoly frame and fork.
I havenít met with sellers yet, but Iím about 6í 1íí, so I think they should all be in my range.

Shifters:
What are you planning for shifters?
Brifters, down tube clamp on style or perhaps a Suntour command shifter?

Mixing brands and vintages( of index type systems) can be a problem.
Friction stuff generally works with mixed brands.

This may be the more difficult aspect of your project.

Good luck.

Iím thinking brifters right now. Derailleurs are Shimano and all of these look like they have triggers, so Iím banking on compatibility.
