Without any money at all?? Highly unlikely unless you have a abundance of riders in your area maybe they have left over parts they wouldnt mind giving away.Other than that if you ae a master fabricator you may be able to manfacture you own but...for what a welding maching would cost you you could buy like a couple of flatland bikes. If you have a bmx bike already just pratice on that untill you can afford a better bike more sutible for flatland. I use to roll on a freeagent dirt jumping bike for quit a while trying to learn flatland.Not too many ways to get one for free or build one.

Not sure if thread is serious. Either way, define "broke." Snag up that free rim in the market right now, just pay for shipping. look for used deals, build the wheels yourself. You should be able to snag a front hub anywhere for hella cheap. You may have to make compromises depending on access to parts / cost.

Keep an eye on pink bike and this forums market. May take a month or two, but you'll be able to piece together something used, albiet probably pretty decent quality, on the cheap.

do you have any budget? with frame/cranks already in hand, the only major purchases would be wheels/freecoaster.
