Where are you?
You'd be more likely to find a complete bike than just a frame I would think.

I can see you're in Rockhampton but what country are you in?

Have you actually priced up buying all the other parts already?
I'd be surprised if it's an economical way to do it, especially adding up all the postage costs for parts.

Have you tried posting on www.findapart.com.au already?

I just emailed a wrecker I know here and he doesn't know of any frames over this side.

Wreckers prices are very high compared to buying stuff online though. Have you actually discussed the cost with them of doing it this way?
I would think you'd be looking at $500 or more just for a registerable frame, if you can find one that's not bent. I know a guy here that paid $400 for an eighties GN250 frame last year from a wrecker.
