salvageable bike? or buy new one

hey I was wondering if someone could tell me if this frame would be any good. It was my cousins old bike before he got deported.

Im lookin to build up a freestyle bike little by little as i learn more, and was wondering if this frame could be used.

Or would i be better off buying a newer freestyle bmx bike and building up from there?

if the bike/frame isn't salvagaeble can you suggest a good starter bmx freestyle bike easily findable in local bike shops?

DK Six Pack. It's the best complete bike for about $300 out.

That's not salvageable as you would say.

Definatley get a new bike if you are going to seriously get into bmx. DK Six pack will meet your needs and it's pretty strong and affordable.

If you have a local shop around you go in and see if they can order you the DK, if not then go to

The Comp IIIs look like they might be usable, the rest, not so much.

I had a trusty Comp III up front for awhile, it was too skinny and wore down real fast. But it was great while it lasted, just i'm too broke to go through tires that fast.
