There is a forum member local to me who built his own range of road and MTB frames for a short while
Thanks, Mark...saved me posting
Not quite a 'range'
...30something frames over 4 years, mostly road, but here are a couple more muddy ones: Columbus Max (gold) and Niva OR (black) 1992ish::
and the Ti one I built on my UBI
course last year:
I started with a course at Harry Quinn after they'd moved to Pembroke. I'd read a whole lot of books and done a bit of practice, but it certainly convinced me that it was possible.

Other courses can be found at Downland Cycles
in Canterbury, the Bicycle Academy
in Frome and Bicycles by Design
I've got plenty of stuff/books/tools/tubing/small parts etc if you want some help.
Also a really good run throught and jig plans at Littlefish

All the best,
