Here are a few links for those of you intersted in getting into frame building but not into fabricating your own frame lugs, bottom brackets, fork crowns etc. Also, sources for frame tubing.

http://www.henryjames.com/
http://www.phred.org/~josh/build/build.html (frame design info,links to materials sources)
http://www.framebuilding.com/ (these folks have a catalog large selection)
http://metals.about.com/od/manufacturedmetalsgoods/l/aabikeframemate.htm
http://www.ibike.org/library/bike-frame.htm)

these are just a few to get you started if your interested. I prefer to use chromolly or similar steel alloy tubing. I also machine some of the parts I need. Old frames can become donors for part such as dropouts, bottombracket etc.
