Newbie First Build

Hi guys! My name is Bang and I'm very new to the motorcycle community. I had a bike but my dad wrecked it so now I'm thinking of building one! I have very little experience with bikes and looking for help. So I guess my first question is should I start with a frame up or buy a used bike and take it apart?

I think 4cyl GS is a way better bargain than CB's, CB's are overhyped and later in the 70's, every jap bike other than honda was faster and more modern in design, I think you could pick up a gs550 for about $400 and have a bike that would give you no problems for ages.
