Myles, over at Rat trap Press, just posted about a 1988 Panasonic ATB frame he picked up. He has plans to build a touring bike from it.
Coincidentally, my buddy Mark scored a Panasonic ATB for me, just last week. I had hoped to build it up for Mike, at work, but he wasn't taken with the color. (I built the DiamondBack Cruiser for his wife, recently.)
I gave $35.00 for the entire bike, so I should be able to build something up which I can sell at a reasonable price, without coming out in the red.
