The lower mounts rotate however they need to line up. The lower rear on this one was specific to the mounts on the bike it went onto, it preset the wheel lead, we only did this in the late 1990's this way as we found that the curved rear boss has more flex then we liked. You will want to change the rear to the same "boss and clamp" set up as on the front. We no longer keep the Sputnik sized clamp in stock so it would have to be made, clamps run $65, the boss also $65. The front boss and clamp looks to be a 45 degree, you may find that a 70 degree would also be better on the front. I recommend them being the 70 degree version on both ends for this application. If you wanted to make these your self the tube that slides into the frame while it was designed to be a metric size we have found that one inch schedule 40 pipe is so close as to be spot on.

Best guess looking at the 45 degree boss and clamp on the front and the curved rear is that it came off of a Sportster.
