My shop , I do a little of everything, but special in buildind custom mountain sleds, and their parts. Also almost anything to do with 2 strokes, from turbo's to just regular overhauls, but much of its hopping them up.
Some quads, street bikes, dirt bikes, and building custom truck decks, and such.
I have done motors for cars and trucks for racing and such also, but its not my favorite thing to do.
Sometimes I get asked to just weld stuff up for people, but I am not a pro fabricator, so usually just accept smaller jobs in that area.
I am Marty, Official Slackmaster #13.
Also proud to have a great wife, and 2 sometimes wonderful kids.
BC Chapter Member, also Nebraska, SC, NC, Wyoming, Maryland, NY, Mass, Oregon, NH, WI, Sask/Manitoba Chapters because the people are great....I can always join more, so if you want me just invite me.
If you want a simple website where you show what you can do (pictures and text), then almost any geeky teenager can do the work. A semiprofessional program like 'Dreamweaver' ($400US and up) is very useful and allows movement of pictures. Netscape Composer is FREE and can do most of this work, but no movement. Take a look at my website <http://www.members.shaw.ca/pavelb/index.html> to see what 50-100 hours of work can do. We have Shaw cable web access which allows this type of personal website for free. Note that anyone can contact us through the site and that the site is easily changeable.
If you want your customers to buy your stuff, from your catalogue, online, and have access to 'Paypal' etc. then you need a professional webmaster. This can be very costly.
There will be 'template' sites out there where you use an existing format and you just substitute your pictures and text. Make absolutely sure that you are not breaking copyright or putting yourself in a position of being accused of theft.
If you went to your local high school and put up a notice asking for web help, you will probably get multiple responses. If the High school has a computer science course, the teacher might be willing to get the students to make up some websites to your specifications as a routine term assignment. At least you could ask the teacher who's a good kid he/she might recommend. This could be the best route.
