    ummm...most of them, in some form or another. Remember that "lifetime" also includes the life of the business.

    Titus, on their ti frames, which is all they offer custom anyway, so it fits your spec.

    life of what? The frame, you, the builder.
    How many of these builders where around 15 years ago?
    How many of them will be around 15 years from now?

    Most custom folks are realy good about any issues there product has, "lifetime" is hype

    All warranties I know of have some limitations (regardless of who is offering it).

    If there is no business to contact...I would say that is a big limitation. Custom builders can and do (for whatever reason) decide to close shop and do other things...if that happens, you are likely to be "on your own" in terms of warranty.

    If the builder you use is really a "stand up" person, perhaps they will return your calls after they close shop....that is, if they do not change their phone number.
    My ego is bigger and better looking than yours.

    just remember the immortal words of Tommy:

    Tommy: Let's think about this for a sec, Ted, why would somebody put a guarantee on a box? Hmmm, very interesting.
    Ted Nelson, Customer: Go on, I'm listening.
    Tommy: Here's the way I see it, Ted. Guy puts a fancy guarantee on a box 'cause he wants you to fell all warm and toasty inside.
    Ted Nelson, Customer: Yeah, makes a man feel good.
    Tommy: 'Course it does. Why shouldn't it? Ya figure you put that little box under your pillow at night, the Guarantee Fairy might come by and leave a quarter, am I right, Ted?
    [chuckles until he sees that Ted is not laughing too]
    Ted Nelson, Customer: [impatiently] What's your point?
    Tommy: The point is, how do you know the fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy; well, we're not buying it. He sneaks into your house once, that's all it takes. The next thing you know, there's money missing off the dresser, and your daughter's knocked up. I seen it a hundred times.
    Ted Nelson, Customer: But why do they put a guarantee on the box?
    Tommy: Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of ****. That's all it is, isn't it? Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for now, for your customer's sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality product from me.
    Ted Nelson, Customer: [pause] Okay, I'll buy from you.
    that is all I got, back to your regularly scheduled discussion
