Custom /handmade bikes from Los Angeles area?

With the National handmade bike shindig going on this weekend in Richmond, VA, and a mostly futile obsession with thinking about getting a custom bike someday in the not impossibly distant future, I thought I'd ask if anyone knew about any local (LA, OC, area) bike makers? I'd be interested in the gamut of folks who make everything themselves to those who outsource some stuff and do the assembly/customization themselves.

thanks,
Jeff

p.s I own a custom steel Serotta...that was custom for some one else who happens to be about my size and was willing to sell it to me used!
