What and where tubing discussion for minibike frames

I am new to fabricating mini frames but I'm going to do it what kind and size of tubes should I buy to make a large frame mini and is there a good online source?

Seems like 1" mild steel round tubing (.065-.080) is pretty popular and I buy mine (8' sticks) from a local overstock,recycle yard that sells metal which is cheaper then online. I bought a tubing bender but could never make the 90 degrees look nice even when filled with sand, so I ended finding the 90s online pretty reasonably priced.
