12 0 clock bars can be bought and/or just welded up yourself.

Sprockets... generally if you're a stunter you get this horrible, dinner plate sized sprocket that look like :puke:
You know how your riding lawn mower jumps off the line and you feel like it will fly but in 2 seconds flat it is at top speed @5mph? That is the sprocket you want. :wink:

What are you starting out with? You can buy a stunt ready bike on e-bay for &1500.00 and under. all they end up being is Krylon painted piles of bent up crap. Or fur covered. That must be for safety. You need to be able to stiffin up the frame, and protect the heck out of your motor. Take stock in frame sliders. Let air out of the oversized rea tire. and drop the fron sprocket a couple and go up in the back a bunch. Good active front shocks to absorbe all of the impact. and still be able to ride flat in a stoppy. It's a no brainer the only thing close to this off the show room floor is a Kawi EX any how Just build a bike you would enter in a demolition derby and you have a stunt bike. :2cents:

i was wanting to buy something inexpensive to learn on, learn to ride in general, then buy something slightly nicer, any suggestions?
After reading this you need to crall way before you walk. You will look like a stunter as you learn how to ride. You are stepping into a very dangerous rhelm of riding. Without a carnal knowlage of riding it's self, stunting should be far from your mind. If you dont mind my asking did watch biker boyz or torque? Those two shows were so far from real it isnt funny. Someone also posted on here a video of stunters as a group. Now I would say gutsy, way more than skilled. They actually wrecked their way our of most monuvers. Really talented stunters have years of riding back ground. Before one can take to the sky he must learn to crawl then walk, One can not fly into flight. Please take as much or more time to LEARN HOW BIKES ACT. Do you know how many riders there are right now that dont even know to swerve left you stear right? and vice versa. There is so much to know about Gyro braking and how the front tire spinniing assists you in turning on a wheelie. Please dont jump into stunting, you might just want to jump into a box now. I dont like to ask ones age but I get the feeling your not in you 30's? Take your time. :2cents:
