no clue what bike this is made from other than it's a Honda and it must have been a recent-ish streetbike judging by the frame, but wow.

No paint, all raw metal. I like that the turn signals double as brake lights. Definitely pilfering that idea.

It seems like most cafe racers struggle with the tail design/shape/proportion (imho), but sometimes people hit it out of the park

Hard to believe you could turn a bike that ugly into something that good looking

They said they're going to sell the kit and you could buy the parts individually, so someone could potentially buy the frame modification and make something really nice that isn't quite as trackster looking.

I think I put this up before, but the first issue has been out for a while and it's a great mag. Highly recommended:
