Oh Wow! That looks fab!!!! Great work

is the coating now super smooth, no rub down marks showing?

Done a fantastic job there. It's easy to over think these builds but anything goes with parts I think. Mine - pictured previously started as a cheap frame and wanted a bike to ride about on locally that wasn't too posh plus I wanted an early TS. I never got too precious but I do have those tired Z1's I mentioned, some NOS classic look Wing bars and a few other bits, I might even faff with brakes XT maybe. and I did have some proper SS wheels to build/fit.

BTW you're right yours looks like an early one, possibly not butted? and a 1997? no disc tabs.

The rear end is surprisingly long, even slammed it's a long chainstay.

Awesome keep us posted!
