Some Keepers of the Flame that weren't building pre-83: David Bohm http://www.bohemianbicycles.com/homepage.htm Richard Moon http://cwo.com/~lunarlab/index.htm Darrell McCulloch http://www.llewellynbikes.com/main.htm I'm sure there are plenty of others...

And it's even possible that there are some that were not yet born in '83. Peter Johnson was building exquisite frames by the time he was 18 (and he never worked for any framebuilders as an apprentice)! Check out this flame from an 18 year old in '75: http://www.velo-retro.com/peterjohnson.html
