There's one near you by Chicago... Frames aren't a lot really but its hard to find a tank. There is one guy not too far from here in ct also with a few frames ...my friend Ken does the 3 car hauler thing around the country so we try to avoid shipping fees that way when we can. I'll message you if I think he's passing you in indiana... What city? Oh I see now...Osceola

I hadn't heard of the Simplex Servicycle before I saw your thread Racie. I've just spent the past half an hour learning more about them on the internet and I'm glad i did. What a delightful little motorcycle they are (or were).

Mainly been gathering a bunch of parts...soon we will get in the shop and fab up two frames...after that its all downhill !! Getting the tubing bent locally is a pain...its actually easier to buy a bender and keep it around for future projects.
