About Me

My photo
Back in my hometown of Jonesboro., Arkansas, United States
My name is Dimitri Harris and I have been building frames for over 9 years now. I learned the basics after spending two weeks with Koichi Yamaguchi. He is one of the most interesting people I have ever met and I am thankful to have worked with him. Since then I have just been building one frame after another and learning as much as possible along the way. I build steel fillet-brazed frames that go by the name of MEECH, which is an old nickname that I have had since I was a kid. I build mostly cyclocross frames because I love their versatility however I also do road,single-speed, and mountain bikes as well. Custom frames start around $1400. All the frames are handmade by me here in Jonesboro, Arkansas. I am insured and guarantee all of my work so if you are in the market for a custom steel frame I would be glad to build it for you. I am also building frames from carbon fiber so if you would like to ride a prototype frame give me a shout. Thanks for stopping by. You can email me at meech151@hotmail.com or call (870)897-6703 or visit www.meechcustombicycles.com Thanks.

Yancey's Race Frame

Just picked Larry's 'cross racing frame up from Ace's Wild.  As you know, cyclocross season is over now however we're always thinking about it here at MEECH and we are already getting prepped for the next season.  We decided to use the paint scheme that I intend to use for MOTO-BICI, which is another one of my ideas that is crawling along at a snails pace.  Anyway, it just looks so racey that I can't get enough of it, I want some more of it. I can't believe I just used some lyrics out of a country song.  I was taught never to hate anything, .... except country music.  Speed metal baby! Ok, Rockabilly is where its at but when you're into racing steel you have to mention speed-metal, I mean come on. 

Theres that signature hot pink "MOTO" swank you're gonna be seeing at the races.  If you're gonna go off-road you hafta go MOTO.  I think I'm gonna name my first born Moto.  With a name like Moto Harris what else could one do except be a  racer?  However, if they happened to become a doctor it wouldn't be a bad thing but I'm not sure if any of my offspring will make it to med-school, I just hope they stay outta reform school.  
Calling Dr. Moto, calling Dr. Moto.

I actually got the idea for this paint scheme off of the old Yamaha YZs.  I was always a Suzuki man myself but the Yamaha YZ had an unmistakable look, and let us not forget the MOTO-BIKE.  

Check out the inside of those sexy fork legs.  Wow, I just had another idea.  No, I'm not tellin, you'll just have to wait and see it when its on the starting line.  Maybe it'll be yours.  

This is actually a front shot of the first frame we painted like this but since I am out of head badges at the moment  I wanted to give you a brief look into the future of this frame.
