That Aprila frame looks nuts! Any plans to pimp/mod/non frock that puppy?!
AFAIK the cage has to face inwards, or else it rubs on the bearing face of the BB races. If you hold the parts together outside of the BB, you'll see what I mean. I tried to find a photo reference on the web real quick, but didn't. For adjusting the BB, you might want to go to Sheldon Brown's site and go thru his and Jobst's articles on it.
I'd pad and upholster the seat, but that's just my comfort side talking. It would probably *look* jsut as good bare painted.
