The offending footrest looks to me like a standard 1930's right side "curly - wurly" footrest which has been somewhat straightened out by a previous owner, presumably following bending it by inadvertent dismounting.

The strange thing is the gear side peg is spot on but the brake side is offset about another 3" forward.
I'll get to the bottom of it soon enough.

Next job is to sort the very leaky plate under the crank (for the oil purifyer), and make the ear lever re-centre on changing (possibly hard grease or a broken pawl spring)

The footrest is a very long way back and it has the short(er) "civilian" gear lever. Having it a long way back puts a lot of load on it when you hit a big bump and take your weight off the seat.
Note... The four bolts holding the oil screen plate on (some) go right through and you have to seal the threads when assembling. Nev
