Can somebody recommend a steel frame builder in NY/NJ/CT areas?

Thank you!

Richard Sachs.

But you might want to give us a little more info on what you are looking for to pinpoint the right builder for the job.

I am not sure about Richard Sachs; wait time is too long and the product is no better than many other builders in my opinion.

I can recommend Mike Zanconato; I have one of his custom steel frames and it is an absolute joy to ride.

Zanconato is not in "NY / NJ / CT"...

But fa63 is into something there - if you expand your radius to include MA, you will find a lot of custom builders there around Boston.

Tom Kellogg at Spectrum Cycles.

Close enough to your search area and well worth a phone call and possible trip to the barn.

He's not the right builder if he won't accept your commission.
At this time, I am not accepting any new commissions.
Several years ago, he stopped accepting orders from new customers, and would only take orders from existing customers.

Signature Cycles can do a great fitting and custom steel frame with Seven Cycles.
