Looking for a larger Mixte frame or complete bike but really the frame is the important part.  54-56mm seat tube height.

It's hard to find used ones that large.  The Mixte bikes were marketed as touring bikes for ladies during the post war years, so most are in smaller sizes.  I built a Soma Buena Vista for a city bike a few years ago and love it.  The Buena Vista comes in larger sizes, I think up to 62CM.

Or the Rolls Royce of Mixtes....the Cheviot!

And Marc, awesome Buena Vista!

Thanks,  but I think the Rolls Royce of mixte's these days would have to be the Riv Wilbury.

For a while Raleigh had a lovely road-oriented mixte. You might find one of these used. I was considering it because it was one of the few mixtes I could find that was available in larger frame sizes. (I'm 6'1" with long legs, and they had frames big enough for me.)

For a local handbuilt option, check out Legacy Frameworks in Bridgeport.
