the kits aren't like putting together a model airplane. look thru some of the threads for the Hardcore II and BBC Venom kits and see what these guys have run into. if you are looking for something unique or that matches your style, look at these two.

www.phantomchoppers.com member id - phantom
www.calcustom.com member id - calcustom

they can help you put together a "kit" of your choosing. that way you'll know the parts and combination of parts will work. otherwise you may just have to become a mechanic to build your personal ground up custom.

your frame will determine what engines, tires, etc that you can use. if you are serious about building your own bike to suit your own taste, click on the links that i posted. email them or call them and they will get you headed in the right direction. both of them are all over this site helping people out. another bit of advise would be to buy a video on putting a kit together. that way you can get an idea of what you'll be getting yourself into. be your own judge and determine if this is within your limits. good luck.
