All modern hubs will present the same challenges you will find on the kx450f hubs.
All the major manufactures use a 25mm rear axle and a 20mm front axle except for KTM and Husky which use a even bigger front axle.
All use larger rotor sizes.

I plan on building a modern version 83 kx500 that I will be updating just about everything on so I'm right behind you..
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.
