The first build always looks a bit rough. We've all been there. The good news is, the next one looks better, since you've learned from the first. Added bonus, you're reading here, which should give you a lot more info/guidance/ideas to go from.
The first motor I slapped on my beast ran for a while before it died. For the second, I knew a lot more (from reading everything I could here) and properly prepped eveything for the replacement. When I motored Harley59's bike (as a replacement for a trashed e-bike, for 1/10th the cost of the e-bike) it went together pretty smoothly, which gave me the confidence to take on doing my cruiser.
I guess what I'm trying to get at is that you've taken the first step. Each step from here gets better. And you've got the web's best resource here for any troubles you may encounter right here.
Post a couple of pics when you can, no matter what you think of it we'd love to see your bike.
Remember: It ain't whatcha ride, it's how you roll.
