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?
