Local frame builder or frame repair shop needed.

Does anyone know of a frame builder or frame repair shop in the general Los Angeles area? I want to put vertical drop outs on my steel frame that has semi horizontal drop outs. If the cost is right of course. So any help or advice would be appreciated.
I remember a local builder was at the Pasadena Bike Expo earlier in the year, but I never got his card. Anyone know the name of that shop?

Hey Phil,

You might want to contact Jim Kish. He's up in SLO, but he may be able to recommend someone more local, as a lot of builders seem to know each other.

Hey Jim, Thanks. You always have all the high end bike links!!
I'll email arnold racing too. Thanks for the link Chucklehead.
I want to go vertical drop outs because with the horizontal drop outs, I have pulled the wheel out of alignment when I crank in a higher gear either starting out, or up a hill.

Wanted to bump this up in case anyone knows a few more builders/repair shops.

I have a dent in my seat tube that I want fixed before powder coating my frame. I could always do Lab-Metal and such, but I'd like to see if I can straighten the dent before anything else.

So far I'm aware of Townsend Cycles in Monrovia (which I think the OP is talking about from the Pasadena Bike Expo). Any help would be appreciated
