older road bikes

I would have to say go for a complete bike if you do not have a big budget. Late 80s or early 90s Trek, Specialized, Canondale bikes should be fairly easy to come up with. You can get them from 200 to 450. Parts are decent and you will have a general purpose bike without spending too much money.
If you go frame fork only, make sure it is a frame that you want and it fits. Be prepared to buy donor bikes or time for the hunt with a wallet. I think some of the older bikes are better served as fixed gear bikes because of the spacing and sometimes difficulty in getting parts.

Good luck with the hunt.
