I just bought the plans last night. I have a Performance bike that I got for parts. It has Shimano Sora 8 Speed STI Shifters and I was hoping to swap all everything over. It has a carbon fork , 700 wheels etc. The bike is all Alum so can't use any of the head tube and BB. I am open for some suggestions thanks for any info.

They sell parts like you need online. Google bicycle building parts. Or check your local papers, craigslist, etc. for old cheap bikes. Check the local dump. Check the local thrift shop or Salvation Army, etc. Ask friends, neighbors, family for old bikes they don't want anymore.

Thanks I am picking up a Trek 820 bike for $15 today, everything seems to be there. I am hoping the head tube is the same size so I can use the carbon fork. :)

Good find, good price and good quality in those Treks. You got a really good deal!

Yeah the bike is pretty good almost hate to cut it up. I am going to need something to ride in the next two months though. Will be starting on it this next week.

Are you going to be able to touch the ground with your feet with 700c wheels ?

Well the good thing is I have two sets of wheels 700cc and the 26 of the Trek. Will have to see after I get the frame close to fit up.
