Go with what ever style u like best....cafe, brat, fighter or bobber.
With most custom bike styles the tail section is heavily modded or even deleted.
Best to start by choosing a style then stripping the tail and figuring out where to go from there.
Steel frames make it easy to chop and fab/weld new brackets or even a complete subframe. The tail usually hides alot, so figuring out how to minimalize everything and tuck/fit it all securely is the trick.
Take your time. Make sure to get the bike running and driving decent before you start redesigning things, so you don't end up chasing your tail trying to sort out problems after mods.
Good luck and take lotd.of notes and pics.
