Fantastic work!

A few thoughts.

The toolkit on the fender...you are going to want to cut some notches in the fender for the clips to mount to or it will work itself loose and you will lose it driving. I learned that one the hard way.

Does the front wheel clear the round storage container when fully compressed?

Depending on what countries you go through, lots of street urchins do the "slice and dash", where they cut straps of gear and run off with it. This can happen even with the rider on the bike, which is why lots of riders go with hard cases. Your setup, while awesome, seems really vulnerable to that type of crime.

Do you know the total wet weight?

In any case, I don't mean to piss in your Corn Flakes, just a heads-up. I wish I had 1/10th of your fabrication skills, patience, and craftsmanship. Living the dream!!
