Although the bike wont include an engine (yet?) I was thinking about making a bike frame, I've seen custom ones before and they look much better than ones you can buy, it'd also be a good way to make it better to mount an engine. would this be a good idea? I've got a welder and know how to use one so would it be that hard?

I hope I’m reading your last sentence correctly. If your asking us how hard it would be then yes it could be. But it also depends on your fabrication abilities also. If you can weld then I would say 50% of your ability is already there ! Welding is usually the part that people don’t know. Only issue I see is maybe a tubing bender for better lines and a better end result.

so I would say go for it.

or buy a frame and modify it. Which is what I did. And I have the ability to build all of my stuff from scratch. But it’s nice having a platform to start with.

After recently building a bike for a neighbor... I'd say it's not easy per-se....
If you don't have a bender it's not the end...
But it makes life easier...
Having the tools and a place to build makes the most part of it...
