Nice wheels. I suggest to bin that bottom yoke, purchase, or make, the modified one with the pivot point moved back.
The chain case will repair pretty easily, make a piece to fill the gap, keep the weld to a minimum.

Just a thought Eric, If that's one of the thick felts on the Fork Stem, We think it's a bit on the thick side,
We fitted one some time ago, And found it made it hard to set the bearings right,
It made the steering a bit stiff, After a few miles we then found the steering bearings were too loose !.
I now cut them in half, Same with the old type wheel bearing felts,
Just my thoughts, Good Luck, Bill.

Eric, do your self a big favor and purchase a set of Cometic gaskets from the Chicago section - email to phpeh@hotmail.com Then get the matching seal set for all the oil lines etc from Neal Videan - V3 products - see his advert in the back of MPH.

Also I see you are using the timed breather which when modified works very well. The modification is to widen the slot in the rotating sleeve so that the breather closes around 5 ABDC and opens somewhere between 15 and 20 ATDC.

Wrong lower eye bolts on the shock absorber........Use the longer ones or you will limit the amount of travel quite a lot. Make sure you use the FF 36 Washer under the lower bearing race as well......... with this missing it will change the geometry a little.
