18" disc brake 7 spoker rear mag that fits the drive hub nicely. Will need to have a custom drive flange made up.

I was thinking of doing something similar too.
I still have some alloy plate laying around that I can experiment with, only downside is that I will also have to change the brake pedal which is a bit harder to relocate.
That or adapt some old (cheap) rearsets from a different bike.

You can move your pegs a bit by making new mounting plates, I made mine by tracing on a a piece or cardboard the outline of the stock ones that are somewhat triangle in shape and then making it out of alloy plate to get rid of the weight of the stock heavy castings and mounted them in the stock place, just needed to make a couple of spacers between the plate and frame, you could even use washers lol, you would have some room to move the foot peg to diff places depending on the size of the alloy plate you use ,I was just looking for simple ways to get rid of weight ,but you could also do the same and be able to move the pegs around a bit, I used simple alloy cheap folding foot pegs, cost was about 20 bucks and some elbow grease . Might help you in not having to spend a bunch on rearsets

As expected the kickstart does hit some of the standard FT parts.
If mounted correctly it hits the frame when folded in (little bit of rubber can protect the frame there).
It hits the brake pedal when you kick down on the kickstart and most importantly it hits the footpeg mounts.

With the footpeg and brake removed the bike kicks over very nicely so happy with that. If I clean up the carb and torque the head cover down I'm pretty confident I could start the bike.

For the footpeg issue I am looking to go for some rearsets (or bring a Hex-key with me wherever I go to reassemble the footpeg after starting  ;)). Will keep you posted.

After that I put the engine back in the frame to check for clearence with the kickstart pedal.
Always nice to see the bike assembled again.

I've been quite busy.
I had the cylinder head cover machined to accept the decompression lever. Was pretty expensive but it was very nicely done.
I also spray painted the cover with the same paint I used for the clutch and stator cover, really happy with the result.

Haven't fully torqued the cover down yet as I am thinking about replacing the inlet rocker (this has some wear marks).

I also mounted the new second hand stator and cleaned up the previously damaged flywheel.
