i have used a jag axel, the wishbones have been filped over so i could move the anti roll bar around to the front , as it was in the way of the shocks on the rear

the handbrake sits under the pannier box, and it is only to one wheel , as it make this build a bit easyer

this is a view of the propshaft , hope the angle is not to tight , let me know what you think, I had the jag boss turned on a lathe and married it with a hardy splicer from a reliant , then bored out the center to take the bikes drive shaft ,

Looking good.
I would box the lower shock bar.
You can remove the center stand & rear crash bars now, don't think you will be needing them.
Use the bags & some trailer fenders, then add in the middle.
The Jag is a good starting point, what is the gear ratio?
