I used to think there were tons of old 27" bikes out there, until I actually started looking for them. Then I realized how scarce good 27" frames are becoming these days, Old Varsities and Continentals are 75% of what I see.

You gonna get some decals? Might break the bank, but I think they'd look awesome.
Those old 27 inch wheel bikes are out there I think but you need to be patient, at least that's my experience. Bikes from the 70s tend to have a lot of clearance and generally can be found at pretty attractive prices. The one downside to those bikes is that they tend to be 120 mm wheels so they may need to be spread.
