Mocked up the rear hoop today. There are sleeves added inside for strength. The suspension mounts will get re-enforced later. Also mocked up an electrics tray and side shields out of cardboard in case they need modifications as the build progresses. I am relocating the oil tank behind the air filter so that's next to come

So I finally received the lead kit to fill the tank emblems. I prepped the tank yesterday by sanding and roughing up the surface to accept the filler

Finished product. After about an hour filing and sanding. There are a few low spots but overall not to bad for first try. I'm very happy with the end result and all that's needed is a bit of bondo and sculpting when she's ready for paint

I'm digging it man, that tank filler worked great.  Inspiration bike looks amazing too, looks like it even has tire clearance built into the seat.  Just about perfect in my book, though I do prefer fenders to none.
Half the fun's in the get there...

Thanks coyote. Not sure if I'll run fenders, I'm leaning more towards a splash guard between the frame rails, maybe a speed hole design on bent sheet metal
