race bike fitting help

Hello,
I want to try BMX racing and am figuring out what size frame I need. I am a little under 6' 3".

I am a framebuilder (road frames) so I am trying to figure out what size frame I should build myself.

I think I am pretty tall for the sport, so should I go with a big 20" or a 24"? If so, what size frame (I have no experience fitting people for BMX bikes clearly)?

Thanks!

You could look for big frame, maybe 21.5" or a cruiser. But the 20"s are cooler.
