Yes, the center stand will be an issue as well. The bike is currently on my lift (just finishing up a top end rebuild, Dave Taylor head steady, new paint, fork rebuild, etc) so I wasn't able to install both shocks and test the center stand.
I have an Atlas Cafe Racer and the center stand is annoyingly short as well. Probably due to non-stock DOT shocks I fitted.
I have to use wood blocks to jack it up enough to spin the rear tire.
