Franklin Frames?


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.

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!
