Nice start.
I'd go with a blower rather than a turbo and build it with a reversed head.  That way you can sit the blower low down at the front mounted in extended front engine mounting plates.

Goggling "reversed head custom bike" I came across this.

thanks Zen  for the info
l had thought of that
l had a friend of mine  who ran a reversed head and boy did he have trouble
with cooling it ran great but once you stopped at the lights or go below 50kph the thing would start to cook
they used run that sort of set-up in dragracing

Yeah, there's a reason why the exhaust ports are at the front in the air stream.
Looks trick though and sometimes that takes precedence over practicality.
I was actually looking for pics of a specific Royal Enfield Constellation engined lowrider with a reversed head that I remember from about the time John Reed was showing his Virago.  It ticked all the right boxes including a goosenecked frame and Don Blocksidge engraving.

Looking good.
We went to see Grand Budapest Hotel during the week and in it Willem Dafoe rides a mean looking 40's BMW/NSU/Zundapp (or I suppose it might be a Neval/Ural/Cossack) Bobber.
