My plan is to swap the original engine with px series which been upgraded with 177 polini cylinder kit and keihin pwk 28, due tight budget i keep the original ignition and just reduce some of its weight

I kind of like what's left of the original paint, if that's what I see. Are you going to try to keep it? Try to get a curved kickstart lever for the PX motor if you can, like this one: https://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/products/kickstart+lever+vbb+style+_75122000

Kick start
I use standard kick start and just bend it a little bit just enough to clear the floor board
