One of the reasons a stock Thruxton looks so good is the way all the body lines are complementary. This "cafe" storm is an awesome build, but its hard to get past the broke back seat to tank lines. I don't care if you need to extend the bottom of the tail unit a touch,or raise the front of the tank a bit, GET that lower line to work with the lower tank edge.!! And yes I build bikes myself, and I don't care how long it takes, get the lines right, all the $1500 shocks in the world can't make up for bad lines.
