I appologize for my presumption. There are a lot of good frames in that price range, but not customs as far as I know. Read through tthe threads here, and you'll get some good ideas fairly easily.

For components you don't need full track stuff for the road, or even to race on the track for that matter. You'll hear people wax poetic about Sugino 75 cranks, and Campy C record, and full NJS etc. but if you just want a good bike you can enjoy riding none of it is neccessary. A good road crank with a single road ring will still pull the chain around just fine.

Wheels are the place you want to sink most of your money I think. It's the rear hub that sets a fixed gear bikes apart from other bikes.
