ESTABLISHED in 1976, Franklin has built

over a thousand frames. These include singles,

tandems, triples, trikes, small wheel, and an

occasional recumbant or high-wire cycle. Most

work is done "in house", including painting and

polishing for chrome. Actual plating is sent out.

  Bicycle frames are the primary work, al-

though over the years, additional offerings

have become a major part of our business.

Other work includes product and prototype

development, jig, fixture, and specialty ma-

chine building. The prototype and machine

building is not limited to just the bicycle



  High-wire cycle fabricated by franklin, de-
