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.

Several years ago, he stopped accepting orders from new customers, and would only take orders from existing customers.
