I've been looking for a bike to purchase for to many hours to count. This looks pretty good but I'm no expert. In fact, I'm just getting back into BMX after a long time off. I've contacted the seller. The frame size is 20.75 and there is no brakes. If this is a good deal, what would brakes run me and would it be something I can do myself?

Thanks!

You need to find out a parts list to justify a grand spent

Looks like a pretty solid build. I'd want to know what wheels etc though. And director forks look weird.

You can get brake kits fairly cheap (like the odyssey Springfield, not the best brake out there, but it'll do the job and comes with cable and lever), then you'll need mounts too which are probably $13 or so
