I'd like it a whole lot more if they had put at least a "repro" OEM frame under it ... If you're gonna try to build a very traditional, vintage style bike, the cheap tubing frame with gusseted neck just plain looks cheesy, IMHO.

Rusty Clark built a "48 state". That's how building a cost efficient Knuckle kit is done :!:
Everybody likes something different (which makes the industry wheels go around) - The focal point of most projects is the "framing" of the Knuckle or Pan motor. Different frames - same subject matter.

I agree with you. The black bike looks streetable; the overly chromed red creation is a trailer queen.
