    Cutsom cages in Nor-Cal

    A guy named Keith at Susanville Transmission in, obviously, Susanville. Made the rear half of mine this year. His number is (530) 257-5432...I believe. Let me know if you can't contact and I can double check that info.

    I guess a good question would be, "How far north are you?" If I'm not mistaken, Morgan Hill is in the Bay Area. Susanville is pretty much out-in-the-middle of nowhere; we're between Redding and Reno.

    How close are you to Grass Valley? I know a reaaally good shop that does reallly good work.

    They did all the tube work on my old rig-

    Shop is called Twisted Metal Fab. Owned by brothers Joe and Brendon Thompson. They did the fab work on a custom chopper that ended up on the cover of V-Twin magazine-

    The orange one.:wink1:

    They do some of the best tube work I've seen.

    Big ugly brown & white '85 blazer. Had a Chalet on it two years ago. If you live here, I'm sure you've seen it. It's the only one like it in town. Who are you?

    Gotta love that bottle opener on the end of the stinger. Nothing like an end-of-the-trail refreshment!

    Is that a K-5? It sounds familiar, but I thought it was something smaller...like an Explorer. Maybe I'm thinking of something else. So now you've got me at a disadvantage; you know who I am, but I still don't know who you are. Shoot me a PM.
