None that I'm aware of...but some fly under the radar. Groovy Cycle Works is in Wooster, Ohio. No idea how far that is to KY. There are a few in PA too.

Do you know what you want? Tigged, Lugged, Brazed? Steel, Aluminum, Ti, Carbon? It's all out there by small custom builders. Most builders are comfortable using measurements provided by the rider, but some still require in-house or "pro" measuring.

I'm setting up shop in TN soon...and hope to meet and ride with most of my customers, but realize that I'd be severely limiting my market if I did. David Kirk mentioned that he'd sold many bikes overseas and only 2 in his home state, and he does great work and it's a big state--well, not population wise.

Good luck finding a builder you like and I'll be glad to help steer you.

Yes, I found a hobbyist and a possible lead in Lexington and a damn fine feller in Indy (not too far).
