Hi from Shelby Ohio, home of the Shelby Bicycle. I have a small business and several employees now (5 kids also). I started about 29 years ago in my basement screen printing while teaching school during the day. Graphic designer, screen printer, vinyl wraps and other stuff. We do about 1000 shirts a day now and moved out of the basement to a building on our property.
Once the kids left the house I became addicted to Shelby bikes, I found hobbies and got bit hard..... I walked into my first barn full of bikes, cars and signs and my jaw hit the ground. I have a couple old bikes now and have made a few rare bike parts that where to expensive to buy or hard to find. Not a great fabricator but I am going to give it a shot. I have put together a few Shelby's after gathering up all the parts and going to swaps, etc..
I help with the local Shelby bicycle festival and I'm a co-founder of the Shelby Bicycle Historical Society.
I've been watching these builds the last couple years and really enjoy all the creations. I am going to join in the fun. This group looks like a lot of fun and good spirited.
