Do a search on that forum, rm fork swap and a few good reads. The gist is swap steering stems, press on new bearings, use rm wheel, axle, and caliper of the forks you use. Get creative with speedo and turn signal mounting. You'll need to bush the upper clamp where the stem goes through, I used a copper coupler cut down from the hardware store.
