8" to 10" conversion on VBA - A shorter centerstand

Hi all,

I recently did a 8" tire to 10" tire conversion on my 1960 VBA. My mechanic also put in a new engine. Currently I have a LML engine for Vespa P150X:

And this Pascoli center stand:

My question is whether I can go with a shorter center stand? I hate how high up the front wheel is and it's also much harder to roll the scooter the scooter off the center stand. I am trying to make the scooter look as close to stock after the conversion. 

Thanks for any help! 

Happy New Year,
