    Franklin Frames?

    Hi,

    I picked up a Franklin Custom all reynolds 531 with Cinelli bottom bracket and lugs. Is this builder still in business. He used to have a website, but I can't find it anymore. I was hoping I could send him some pictures and some info so he could possibly date it. Any information is greatly app.

    Franklin Frame. His ISP changed names. I have had several people tell me he prefers the phone anyway. He did a nice job on my Lejeune Pro frame.

    He repainted my 1995 Waterford about 3 years ago. He's one of the few guys who makes and paints his frames. I really like him. I might buy a frame in the future for an unusual project I'm thinking up.
    1999 Waterford RSE-11, 1995 Waterford 1200, 1989 Specialized Rockhopper Comp
    1989 Raleigh Technium, 1989 Schwinn Traveler, 1986 Specialized Rockhopper
    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    He is still around, I took a frame there to be repainted on May 14th. It should be done any day now. If you like a scenic road trip in the amish country, there is no better place to go than Franklin Frame. I live in Ohio myself but was shocked to see how different it is in Newark compared to Toledo!
