Exclamation Choosing the right bike...and.....custom fuel tank

I'm about to embark on my first moto-bike project. I'm shopping around for the perfect bike to use. I'm really into cafe racing so I wanted to model it after a cafe racer.

Is there anything I need to know before sinking $500+ into a *****in' cruiser?

The bike I'm looking at using is the Nirve Skulls.
I like it because it has the motorcycle looking front fork tubes and a front disc brake.

It has an aluminum frame. Is steel preferred over aluminum? Does it matter?

Any advice...or warnings to a first time builder are greatly appreciated.

Oh yeah, one other thing. Anyone out there build their own fuel tank?
