Planning to build a fixie bike from scratch.

I work at a bicycle warehouse and Ive been interesting in building a bicycle from scratch. It sounds like a fun project to do, to teach me more about bicycles.

At my work I found an older Norco Indie frame in the metal waste that had nothing wrong with it besides a small crack in the dropout. I dont know how substantial the crack is yet. I was told its miniscule. So im thinking of using this as my frame.


-How easy is this sort of project for a beginner/adept bicyclist?
-What sort of parts will need to buy?
-What should I keep in mind when buying parts as to not buy the wrong ones.
-What things should I be careful not to do?
-What will be the most difficult part?

I am a bit worried about are buying/installing the bottom bracket and the headset.

Any good articles or websites that you find helpful would be greatly appeciated to.
Thanks
