My nephew wants to put together a bike for the first time and have a go at making a pair of wheels 8)
I have worked on mtb and road bikes but never a bmx, so its all a bit new to me.
What are the best UK based online shops for bmx parts etc.

I'm a big fan of alans for bmx gubbins. Perhaps not the cheapest around but they seem to have a really cool selection of parts be it old or new school. Website is www.alansbmx.com

They seem to ship really fast too and give you free stickers for the bike or toolbox in my case :)

Avoid winstanleys - they were nothing but problems for me. I've since heard of many other problems from fellow BMXers.
