    Just a thought regarding the rear master cylinder. Would it be possible to turn it around?. I'd guess a longer brake hose would be needed, and the linked brakes line (if still fitted) might be a issue.

    I tend to agree with the above...
    Rearsets too far back will put more weight on your wrists. This is a dealbreaker for a lot of people.
    It also prevents you from using your legs effectively on a bike. This is more a riding style difference and there are plenty that sit straight on the seat and steer. I tend to need to use my feet and legs.

    Basically what he said.
