Looks very nice indeed. Have you got any close up photos, large or small ;-), of the rear shock adapter and what's it's made from, Ali or steel? Is it machined from one solid piece or welded?
I never seen someone go to the trouble of making an adapter and then fit a Risse shock. Risse are one of only two suppliers that sell the correct fitment shock for Proflex with the cone end.

Make sure you put Girvins on or the work will be for nothing.

Simple yet effective. It's hard to tell but the cone almost looks hand filled. Did the job though.
