I have seen vintage stingrays motorized but your frame is really tight.
There are plenty of new parts available for banana seat bikes on the lowrider sites.
Is there a brand on the head badge?

Nice!

I noticed the fork opposite the way they made it to be. Is that just at the moment or intended to be. The stress may not be best that way and the clearance wheel tire to frame less.

Putting the neck the opposite is fine (seen in earlier pic) as I've done that to get handle bars further back. Maybe it is just that you switched it back?

When you can get video of it running, please do!

the fork is frozen up and i checked and it isnt giving me any more clearance turning it the other way. It looks tacky but i havent gotten to heating it and freeing it up so i can turn it around

You may already know this. If it is a wedge type neck on the fork, then loosen bolt (if that is frozen then liquid wrench or penetrating fluid), then tap lightly with hammer the recessed bold head and that separates the wedge and it comes apart an also allows to adjust direction.
