Per Jonkster a member here:

the rearsets are Tarozzi folding pegs (http://guzzino.com/taforese.html)

I made up some triangular 'standoff plates' that bolt via spacers to the rear engine mounts and rear footpeg mounts. The pegs then are bolted to these (they give you more flexibility in how far back/forward/up/down they are than using an existing hole like the engine mount or rear footpeg holes etc).

One major issue with rear sets on the T120/140 is the kick start and clearance between it and the pegs. (Also with rearsets and the standard kick lever you find your shin is hitting the kickstart when riding which makes it uncomfortable and stops you being able to tuck your knees in properly).

I may have sent this to you previously, Jonkster, a member here gave me this info. regarding rearsets. :
I got around this by buying an old Honda CB750 kickstart lever that folds at the 'knuckle' (ie hinges at the bottom near the shaft) rather than the foot bar and then fitting it onto a T160 kickstart 'knuckle' (the bit that goes on the kick start shaft - the Honda was for a splined rather than keyed shaft so had to be swapped. The T160 knuckle fits the shaft exactly and is quite close to the CB750 size so didn't need much effort to mate the two bits).

It does involve some trial and error and fabrication so isn't a straight 'bolt on'.
