Try Projex in Cradley Heath
or you`ve got Dave the Frame in Great Barr
or even Boneshaker Choppers in brum
as for cheap? depends on how cheap , most builders have overheads and bills to pay

I did 2 weeks work expirience with Malarkey engineering, they are pretty conversant with jap engined bikes and trikes, that was the main constuent of the work schedule when I was there, a few years ago now, but they are honest and know their onions and having seen the work that goes into a bike first hand, I recon they represent good value too

I know a good chop builder near Kettering.... He normally does hotrods but he did my gpz frame and pipes for me at a very good price.

That hard stuff underneath the wheels - looks like road to me.

Could be private alleyway though...

No mate.... Work has been mental recently, its hard enough doing customers bikes and running Fat Maggot at the moment. No time for my own stuff Which is really pissing me off as the Fazer 6/R1 hybrid is nearly done as is the chop and the SSSA Gixxer still needs an engine swapping..............ARRRRRGGGGHHH

Might know someone who'll want it when it's done - she just can't finish it herself, y'know?

I am desperately trying to get the lump on the gixxer swapped so that I can do BITM by bike (While she takes the van)... I will add the geeper to the ever growing list of stuff to do
