Another Pake Question, Is it worth it?

So I went to my LBS, and I got an estimate on a customized complete bike.

Heres the list of parts:
Pake frame/fork
Sugino RD messenger crankset
Deep V's
Phil Wood flip flop rear hub
surly cog
tektro brakes
Soma handlebar
Soma saddle
and thats all i can remember so far.

the estimate is 950, is this overpiced or fair?

I'm new to fixies, and did think about just converting an old road bike but I havent had anytime. So when you reply back, remember that time is a factor here. I don't have time to set up a complete bike part by part, let alone look for parts, part by part.

Thanks for the help!!
