Frame Swap Recommendations - Midwest

Did a search already on frame swaps, but it seems all the shops are out east.

Can anyone recommend a good shop in the Midwest?

Many thanks!

How about Defenders NORTHWEST?

Contact Brian (Mybluett) at Defenders Northwest. He's in your own backyard! (Gig Harbor, WA.)

brian@defendersnw.com

http://www.defendersnorthwest.com/Ab.../About_Us.html

As far as involved?

Some people do this: ( image 1 )
Other people do this: ( image 2 )
It all depends on this: ( image 3 and 4 )
But everyone winds up doing this: ( image 5 )
But then you'll be happy like this: ( image 6 )
And you'll then expect this: ( image 7 and 8 )
Which will make you feel like this: ( image 9 )

I think I overkilled it by like one or two pics ;-)

But I digress.

Just give Brian a call. You'll be glad you did.

Agree 100%. Get hold of Brian at Defenders Northwest.

Frame swap different to frame and bulkhead swap.

+1 for Defenders Northwest. Brian is an excellent dude. He guided me through my swap. I have a sweet new galvy frame and three hundy and there's no part of the truck I haven't touched.

Very funny . That took some time, unless you have been waiting for just the right moment to pull those pictures out of the album.
