    I have tarozzi rear sets and they have the folding peg option so you could just buy the pegs and make the rest yourself.

    I used a Hyabusa set. Lots of them on E-Bay. Link where it goes onto shift shaft is proper. Plenty of room on the right side for brake master cyl. Make your own plates. My plates are tacky, crude garage style but work. Kinda like me...

    Now that is right up my alley. Like Bill, I've been thinking about this for a decade. Do you have pics? I'm curious what kinds of fabricobling might be required.

    Edit: OK, I did some googling. It looks like what's need is a flat or nearly flat plate to adapt from the stock peg mounts to the rearsets. Like maybe a 1/'4 inch thick, drill some holes, saw the profile and grind. Maybe paint. Yes?

    Edit the 2nd: I ordered some. I'll have to beat them up a little more to make them match my bike.
