    I filled you in with the details on Facebook ?

    Use the Lifan 150 loom and connect all that up, then run the Pink wire though the 6v regulator/rectifier to charge your battery.
    You can run the headlight power wire directly off the pink wire, but will need to fit a 12v headlight globe to it.

    see the right hand top section of the pic above, that is the reg/rect.
    You'll need to add a short bit of white wire to the end of the yellow wire from the stator, and connect it up to the diagonal terminal on the reg/rect.

    looking at the terminals in the end of the reg rect, this is how to wire up the plug that plugs into it.
    1 is the red wire that goes to the positive terminal of the battery.
    2 is the white wire from the stator
    3 is the yellow wire from the stator
    4 is the green wire that goes to the negative terminal on the battery, and an good bare metal earth point on the frame

    Sort of, you can get rid of some of it.
    The Z50 rectifier, CDI plug, and Ignition Coil wiring can go, but that's about it.
    Is the bike going to be road rego'd ?

    No but the Z50 should have one, It's a 2 wire rectifier.
    I linked you the reg/rect you need on Facebook

    Yeah you might be able to modify the Lifan 150 to take a starter motor.
    I'll have to have a look at one of my engines to suss it out.
    To run 12v you'll just needs\ to fit 12V bulbs to the lights, easy enough.

    That last pic looks like a brake light switch ?
