Nope, similar spec to my Reid Harrier FG.
Do it!

Please also consider Tektro TL720 lever. It is smaller and slimmer.

Brake cable internal route, so you need to hack or get a holed bullhorn. But the finishing result will look much better.

Most recent pic.
Mods, Let's see...
Tektro 720 levers (BNA market)
Satori bars with internal cable routing (eBay)
SRAM Rival brakes with Swisstop pads (BNA market)
Zoom wedgebolt stem (Bicycle Recycle)
EBay bar tape and cables.
Kinesis carbon fork (BNA market)
Steel cable clips (Velogear)
Shun crankset (eBay)
Brass coloured half link chain (eBay)
Brooks B15 clone saddle (eBay )
Maxiss ReFuse 25mm tyres (Wiggle)
VP 398 pedals. (eBay)
Stainless minimalist bottle cages (eBay)
Pretty sure everything else is factory...
All this has taken a little over 3 years as things caught my eye.

WOW im impressed
it must be taken lots of time for you to built it
im thinkin getting a Rx4.1 or 720? Always prefer a internal cable but the 720 lever is shorter than 4.1
and ur handlebar looks longer than nomral bullhorn ?

Thanks. Not sure about the bars, think perspective may be a thing here.
The levers are perfect length for a two finger grip from the bottom section of the bars

The Cane Creeks are definitely external, you can see the cable entry port below the mount plug.
SRAM? A semi educated guess sould kinda say internal but I wouldn't put money down on it.

I'm running THESE internally cabled bars on my Reid, they're compatible with both types of lever.

If you haven't bought yet do your self a favour and check out http://canrdlytreadlies.com.au/
I lost 2 SS in a shed fire last year and one was a Cell, these State Cycle SS are a lighter, better build than Cell
a little more expensive but my Cell was 13kg State Cycle is 10kg and better spec'd
It's not wind, it's a training aid.
