I would get some metal pedals like trailmixes but that's just my opinion and put the ribcage in the rear and rollcage in the front and everything else seems pretty good.

400$ for a mothership sounds a little overpriced.

Forks: Odyssey R32
Cranks: Odysseys are legit, also consider Subrosa Bitchin's
Why would you put a Rollcage rear and a Rib front that's just retarded, go Ribcage front and back.
I would avoid Hawks, if you like slick tires get Shadow Stradas instead.
Rest is all legit.
Just sounds extremely overpriced, like bars and stem 100$ what the hell, where are you buying from???

EDIT: I just checked and the Mothership v2 retails 299 USD on dans.

Heard they're great for street, but tend to slide out on slippery park surface.
I'm running Stradas right now and I gotta say I'm very pleased with how they're holding up.

I would have suggested putting the Hawk rear and putting an Aitken up front, but I guess that'll do too.

I'm sure Aikens grip good but there too aggressive for my taste i like slicker street tires that's why i got Hawks.

Back Bone is Australian... you might not even top $1500 with this build. And as stated before Rollcage back / Ribcage rear is fucking retarded, considering the Ribcage is heavier and stronger.

That's AUDs ...
Why on earth would you order form Australia if you're from the US. (according to your profile)
Just get your stuff from Dans or Albes.

Shiv's are shit. Get odyssey forks
Ribcage in the back not the roll
Get metal pedals
Shadow chains are shit. Get a bluebird until the keychain. Comes out

It´s funny that you are saying that those prices are really expensive, because in Spain they are normal prices, except the frame and the forks, that are more expensive...

You need to change your location, you are obviously in Aussieland. If those were US prices you would be being ROBBED!! I still think you could probably buy it all from Empire, Albes or Dans Comp in America & have it shipped for you. I don't know what the Customs are like in Aussieland but i rarely get charged more the £40 here in the UK even on BIG orders. You'd save a SHIT TON of money!!

I have do it with this. 400$-300euros, for the mothership frame, which is 389 euros here. Sorry, but i am too lazy to put all the other items, but Fit shiv II 180$-135euros, they are 149 here.. Spanish prices suck, specially animal is really overpriced here...
