I was thinking about cutting it just past the little struts. I agree about the different look with it sitting higher and that's actually what I needed with the curve on the King & Queen seat pan and the high sissy bar. I can see where that wouldn't be a preferred look for any other build though. For a bobber it would look hokie IMO.
