Looks to me that your just about a genius when it comes to building these things. Cant imagine some sheet metal or fiberglass being a pain in the ass for you.

Just an idea
Far from a genius however fairings maybe an option for next year

I managed to get all the parts cut out, tabs for the rigid swingarm and the oil tank fabbed. The engines will share the same oil tank that is located where the old neck was. The frame is ready to take back to Kylenv for the final round of frame braces. I know the oil tank looks weird right now but it will come together with time.

Looks great. All I know is that a pic of this thing will be my new wallpaper once it's done. Make sure you get some great photos when you get it out there.

No middle drives being used. The Warrior oil tank is on top (and built into) the middle drive assembly.
Placing the oil tank there provides structural stability for the top frame members, and its all straight-line riding.

Dry sump systems work best when the oil tank is higher than the oil pump and because I removed the mid-trans. The old neck was really the only easy spot I had left to put the oil tank

I got my frame back a couple days ago and the goal is to get the bike so I can roll it around by the weekend.

All good news comes with bad news..

The good news - I just got a new job and I am going back to CALI. and my bike is rolling.

The bad news - It is going to put my bike build on hold while I pack up all my crap and move it.

On another note - I have figured out how to make a stretched Busa look short...
