Mono vs. Dual Shock parts compatibility

If I have a single-shock airhead frame (R80ST or later r65/r80/r100 1985-1995), how many dual-shock airhead parts can be transferred to a mono-shock frame?

What parts might need to be re-purchased?

Will transfer:
complete front end, motor/mounts, trans (but not shift lever), driveshaft (but not swingarm), entire intake tract.

Won't transfer:
Saddle, subframe, tank, swingarm, final drive, all the body panels, maybe battery box, footpegs, shift lever, bunch of other stuff

Electrical mounts under the tank will be very different, so you'll need to figure that out. There won't be anyplace to mount the undertank master cylinder, so you'll need to replace that with something. I say the swingarm won't fit, but it would. You just wouldn't be able to attach the shocks to anything as the subframe won't fit. It could probably be modified to fit pretty easily though. That would get your saddle back in the picture also. Plus probably 1000 other details I'm forgetting.

How much of the monoshock frame you got?
