Re: continuing on with a brat or maybe a cafe racer
I have to agree with Caoboy. Everything needs to go lower. Go back to 26" wheels and drop the seat and tank lower. At least get the seat closer to the rear wheel. Too high for my eye. See if you can build that traditional little 'hump' into the rear of the seat that all cafe racers seem to have. That would help. I'd look at a cruiser frame. They are typically a little lower to the ground than a road bike.
But that's just my opinion and not carved in stone. But you did ask "what do you think?"
