    Hey Epic Garage, Im from Plainfield and looking to build a bobber but dont have space/tools to do it. Would you want to build a bike for me? I could also help on the weekends. Im looking to build something simple but classic bobber. XS650 frame and motor are fine with me because they are cheap and run forever. I have a couple pictures of style i like. Please email me and let me know if this is something you would be interested in doing.

    Thanks,

    Epic garage, small world. I was just looking into renting the last building you were in on 25. (right by my house) You guys doing bikes now? I did car audio for 10 years before getting on the bike kick. I would like to get out there and see what you guys are up to sometime. Need any help let me know. Ive got a 7 foot by 4 foot powder coating oven as well if you need some powder on that XS. Heres a couple of my last 650's..

    i knew there were some of you guys in the area, but did not realize some were in my backyard...awesome.:thumbsup:

    We are not building bikes, this is my personal build. the shop still does Wiring for customs and classics and interior/audio fab.

    Im down for a meet in the spring time... Bike will be put together for World of Wheels this weekend.

    If anyone wants to help, I have no clue what im doing here :laugh:

    Started the wiring, just waiting on tins to come back from paint, and some final touches...

    hopeful she will start:shrug:
