Default continuing on with a brat or maybe a cafe racer

this is a continuation of the thread Called Hmm. ...not sure what do you think?

I had this Murray frame laying around - its an 83 murray Baja. It's lugged and feels pretty sturdy for an 80's murray. Ive made some attempts before with it but it never looked right
I put 24 inch wheels on it and got this

I think I'n on the right track now. I need to get that seat to look a little better, and maybe rig up some kind of suspension. Any tips or ideas would be helpful. If I am re doing the seat I may as well try to make a cafe racer seat. It may look a little more cooler than a brat. I also have to address brakes. The guy at the bike shop said U brakes could be made to work because the pads are under the studs not over like a v brake. Would canti brakes work? I can't remember how they work at the moment.
Anyhoo, this is going to be my winter project.
I have a need for slightly increased speed
