Totally Correct. I cant recommend this enough. I didnt listen .... cost me thousands.Get a running bike...don't start with a basket...fix it as you go...lots more fun...dudley
There really is no cheap when we don't know your budget but let me tell you what i DO KNOW. Jap bikes (Post Chop) have really crappy resale. Remember it is made individual by you and after that ..... its lost its value monetarily. Most guys and gals want to start with a clean slate. I think Brits are cheap and if you're looking for something cheaper ...... you may not have the budget to build any bike. JMO. If you're serious about building something you'd be surprised what you will sacrifice.
