Good news

I think i'm possibly going to build up a bmx ( freestyle ) since i have the chance. I was at the skatepark today on my scooter haha, but yea. My friend Tristan who is insane like tailwhips, 360's, decade's, like anything you can think, is getting a Fit S3 Aitken frame, and he will sell me his Federal Hamilton frame for $25. He also has some spare part's laying around that i can buy from him, and then i can just add on new part's. What would you guys reccomend for a cheap but good fork, and just other part's. Here is a link to the frame, it's in good condition too. https://www.jykkjapan.com/federal/arc...d_hamilton.jpg

Yea he's hecka nice. He said he has some little part's, and he could probably build me up a wheelset. But i'd need fork, bar's, stem, seat, seat post, grips, tire's. Any reccomendation for these parts.

So far:

Fork:??
Bar's: S&M Slam XLT ( White )
Stem ( Elementary )
Seat: Jim Bauer Oddysey Junior seat ( or do you know where i can buy the red checkered seat, oddysey junior )
Seatpost:???
Grips: ???
Tires: ???
sprocket: ??
pedals?

Nah, if the Hamilton frame is the same color as the one you posted put the oranage drive fork on it with some other orange parts and it'll be ace.

No i was thinking about the Kink Whip. The seat on it, could i strip it since it's a slim, then i could put the federal frame on that, which would be better though federal or the kink frame. If i got the Kink Whip i could put like $100 into upgrade's what should i do.

Don't get the Drive fork. The Drive forks have snapped all over the Guide for Bikes.

Haha. I don't know what to do. I need to talk to the guy what spare part's i can get from him. But if i can't get a lot of part's i'll probably buy a complete. Any reccomendations.

Eastern Trail Digger and do a frame swap if you want to keep it cheap.

Just wait with the seat and post, while it will get a decent bike it won't be perfect. I'm sure you'll be replacing parts eventually so be prepared. Thats just an idea to get you rolling.

Yea i understand. But i really hate the seat on it. I love pivotal seat's. I really want the Jim Bauer seat too and it's on sale. I have the extra money, plus i don't have to pay shipping again. But yea, do you have a reccomendation for a seat post. Also are lock on's worth it, if so which should i get.

Redline post, it's the cheapest pivotal and it will still hold your seat.

Lock ons are good for MTB's, they don't belong on a BMX.

Fly bar ends, I run them and love them. I haven't met anybody that doesn't like them, and they're dirt cheap. If you're talking about lockjaw type bar ends, don't bother.

Yes Dans has the post.
