I think you could make them without welding, all you would need is two pieces of steel the same thickness, drill two holes that match up to the mounting bolts, two more to match the controls, bolt the two pieces to the original controls, bolt them to the mounting bolts. The toughest part will be making some sort of hook up for the brake cable for the rear. I am still working on that part. As soon as I get that figured out that is how I will move mine, 3 inches forward, 1 inch higher.
Its piss easy to do I have made for various bikes already, each is different and have there own unique solutions. My advice is make a rough mock up from wood with all the holes in the right place. Then make out of steel or aluminum which is what I use.
