If you are really into riding, and have the money, I would personally go custom.
If not, look for something with sealed bearings, chromoly parts, and maybe some well known aftermarket parts on there.

I recommend browsing on Danscomp, finding some bikes in your price range, and posting them on here to get opinions.

Spencer731,

Veinbmx.com offers a great amount of high-quality complete bikes and parts for a lower price than most. If you haven't had a chance to check it out, we invite you to stop by the website and hit us up on the live chat box anytime if you have questions.

I used to ride quite a bit of moto myself and have also found BMX to be much fun, and a little cheaper

Like the other guys have said, typically it is a little more expensive to build a custom bike. If you are new to riding BMX, you may want to start off with a complete bike because you will get way more bike for your money this way. The Amber complete bikes we offer are loaded with aftermarket parts already, almost similar to a custom build. As you progress with riding you will start to find out which parts you may need to upgrade or switch out for a different size.

You can go all out and buy the custom Pro Circuit KX450f all decked out, but I'm sure a stock Kawi will be more than sufficient for you to go riding. Its obviously up to you in the end.

I would suggest checking out the Amber Savior complete bike.

Just wanted to let you know that you can contact us anytime with questions on our product and try help point you in the right direction.

Have a great day and good luck with the search!
