Following along.  I'm building an '82 KZ440 LTD into a cafe style. 

As for pics on Android, there should be an Attachments button (it is bold text that says "Attachments and other options") to browse to images on your phone to upload.  Click that and then "Choose File".

I like it but the rear looks odd so short like that, maybe needs a longer seat or a rear fender or something.

I was thinking that too...plus I'll get soaked if it rains. Was exited to ride it and threw it together. Been having a hard time envisioning something. Wasnt sure if I wanted to start a bigger project by cutting and welding the rear or what.

Could always make a bolt on tail section. Maybe a MX style rear fender and leave the seat short to follow the lines of the subframe.
