I just finished reading through this - crazy stuff, the good kind! We "met" on the Duc-forum when I was building my Hyper-Strada. Now that my house reno is about done and I too sold most everything on two wheels, I am slowly looking for another bike/build and I'm leaning towards the 950 Adventure as well
Love what you're doing, admittedly I would have been riding it a bit more before tearing it down again, but your on a pioneering and engineering quest here and I can't wait to see the outcome!
Best of luck (with the bike and reno), hit me up for a beer if you're ever up near Seattle!
