    Default Bike Customizing Contact List

    A little something from my archieves that maybe you all would like.

    *********************************************
    I have created a list of who I used and what for.* Is probably more help for my Michigan people but not all of it is local.* I have passed it around not to help me, but help other riders and the businesses I have listed.

    All of these companies and contacts are of the highest quality.* They embrace everything you want when it comes to dealings and the passion that you have for your bike.*

    Here's what it is... hopefully it will help somebody.

    you can see they did a great job of masking everything.* I will still chase every hole with a tap.* The gloss is amazing!* You can see the reflections in the parts and the dust on it.

    I just wanted to add that I talked to Eric B. at Choppinsteel and he is in the process of moving to Chicago

    They are not in Michigan, but I use John at Scooters down in Florida for all my new parts. He's a great guy and always willing to answer any of my questions and they have exceptional service.

    There is Fabricator Kevin: http://www.fabkevin.com/

    He's supposed to be good. I emailed him for work and he replied once but never replied to my other replies.
