Bed is complete! It's two pieces of 3/4" plywood supported by 1x3 and bolted together. The lower portion slides out on 1x2" steel angle welded into a Z bracket bolted to the top piece. I'm using keg joints on everything and it is SOLID. Since the photos I added some horizontal support to tie the structure into the walls. There is a 1" drop on the last 24" of the bed but its not noticeable on the night I used it with just a folding 4" futon mattress. Eventually I'll have custom mattress made with that lower portion thicker than the other to make it even.

Looks nice! I recently got my bed platform installed in the new high top and used a mattress from a rooftop tent. I mounted my platform higher, just for the kids to sleep on, and was trying to find a thin mattress that still had decent performance. The one I ordered was from Tepui RTT and it was easy to cut to size. I don't know what a "custom" mattress would cost but I would think you could make you're own fairly easily using one of these if its cheaper.
Maybe this weekend I will start a build thread and get some images posted of what I have done with my bed set up.

Neat idea. Are you using any supports under the forward end of the slideout? You'll presumably be getting into bed from the front rather than from the back and it looks like it would flex a lot under body weight unless you have some additional supports.

For right now I have a 1.5" poplar dowel that screws into a table leg mount. I might come up with something better later.

Mind sharing what slides you used for the bike and/or fridge tray? I'm looking to build some similar slide out storage but have had trouble finding moderately priced slides with appropriate weight capacity & decent reviews online.
