It's my recollection that the original size battery is physically quite small and IIRC it has been obsolete or nearly so for quite some time.  Here in the US most folks seem to favor a somewhat larger battery, height being the most critical dimension.  For street use, the unsupported forward edge of the battery, and the large lightening holes on the bottom face of the bracket, don't seem to be problems.

One other thing to mention, there's normally a rubber sheet placed under the battery to help keep acid seepage off the metal.
