Bike looks nice. I like the tires actually.

I'm sorry, but, I don't get the knobby tires on a bike like this. Did the PO actually take it off road? I didn't think so.
And if you did take it off road, you'd want fenders.

I get the cafe racer thing, I also understand scramblerizing a bike that you're going to take on smooth-ish gravel or dirt roads, but, don't understand the blocky tires on a street bike thing.
