While not in Illinois, there's a couple new guys, without much of rep that you probably haven't heard of right next door in Wisconsin :-) I think they are both less than 3 hours away.

Try these guys, I've heard they do nice work.

These guys have some hot shot pro spokemans that says he loves their bikes and dosn't even need a custom.

John Cherry in Layfayette Indiana does custom frames. Hang on, I'll look for a link.

Here it is:

A good friend of mine has two of John's creations and is completely satisfied.

John is a fantastic builder. I have a Cherry Bomb and it is an incredible bike. I use it for 24 hour races, and I can't imagine doing those on anything other that the Bomb.
