Durfee Girders

I’m building a frame for a customer and he already has a 18” over Durfee Girder. Eric at Toxic Choppers is doing the bike build. Eric is in Colorado and I am in Texas and Paul Durfee is in Cali. Eric and I worked out some numbers and had it figured out but I didn’t feel comfortable not knowing how much sag their would be. I had spoken with Paul before on other customer projects before and knew he was a pretty cool dude. So, I called him and expressed my concerns. He asked me a few questions and said he would get back to me in a couple of days. Well a couple of hours later he emailed these CAD drawings. Well, shit if that’s not customer service I don’t know what is. I didn’t even buy anything from him. This is totally awesome. Eric did a great job at getting us in the ball park but, Paul hit a home run. Now I can build the frame in confidence knowing the final outcome.

So Lucas. Take your pick.
The moral of the story is Paul Durfee is the man.
