After a lot of work and help from an older neighbor man, he has a cutting torch, I came up with this. Got the idea from BMan. Thanx for all your help BMan.
Here is a pic of the bike.

Cool, Did you lower the front end at all?
How does it ride now?

It rides good. It is a little rough on the bit of gravel and dirt that I have to ride on to get to the paved road. It feels a bit top heavy. A matter of getting used to it. Did not lower front end.
Again I just have to say it. I am so glad to have been pointed in this direction (this forum).

That looks great. I was looking at BMan's brackets earlier today thinking it was a good idea. How much drop did you actually get?

I did not even measure the diff, but the tire is part up into the fender. there are about 2 to 3 inch gap. I set the shocks at 3 setting. At just over 115 lbs, I think I will be alright.

Thanx, I want to buy a mirror repair kit and cut out the shape of the bracket and stick the chrome over the bracket.

Just curious - did you have to get a longer axle bolt? If so, where did you get it? And how long? How thick are the plates? 1/4 inch?
