The entire front triangle is begging to be used for battery capacity.

What exactly do you mean by "proper" suspension? The fork setup seems an odd choice given the price and availability of off the shelf fork suspension. I suspect this design has been used for strength rather than travel.

Whats the plan with the carry capacity? it it to have a bucket on top of the rear rack, or are you planning to use panniers off it?
