After doing some more research on the frame loop I have finally made the decision. With hearing some poor things about the ebay loops from China and how thin they are, I decided to go the extra mile and have one fabricated specifically for the bike. One problem though, COST. With China filtered out of the ebay search, two pages down, I found the solution. I have been in contact with the seller and am very confident in this purchase. He is located in the UK and fabricates frame loops that he makes specifically for Café style bikes. From the photos, the quality looks amazing and the precision on the LED cut is close to none. With that said and done, I have a local welder that will do the welding for me once the part is in.
Due to the welding, the frame will have to be painted again, this time it is going to be done right. Yep, powder coated. I sent an email to a powder coater a few towns north from me explaining my situation. I told them that I definitely want the frame, swing arm, and triple tree done but will need to see the price before I consider throwing the hubs and fork sliders in the batch too.
Hope things are all good with you guys, now back to homework.
