It’s been SEVERAL years since I built a custom bike, but I’ve got a 15 years old son interested in riding one now. We built a frame jig with help from a machinist friend (sitting on the bike in the pics) and have been putting pieces together for about 6 months. It’ll be done on the cheap, but fortunately I had the springer front end and wheels from another bike to give the project a boost.

We’ll likely be starting another one before this one is complete so that we can ride together, but it’ll be a shorter, tube front end, maybe 16″ wheels w/5″ tires front and rear with drag bars. My young son is insistent on throwing on some bling and I’m resisting. We’ll see who wins out.

If it turns out well, we’ll be willing to make frames for others. We’ll keep posting from time to time. We’re in the Pacific Northwest.
