just curious as to what might work. joe c mentioned the CB500 front end should work but i don't know years that are compatible. i'm also curious to hear of other swaps that'll work as well. ..and i already saw the gsxr swap, and am in no rush to undertake that one. i'm looking for drum freindly set ups... any thoughts?

dreg use the search feature, been over it a million times here. all the details. good thing is, i can tell you all the same tings in person tomorrow! you can swap something pretty easily, there are bearing
issues though. but thats a cake walk compared to the ducati on the 305 you did. you gotta post a few pics of that for peeps to see. ill birng the camera tomorrow.

I reamed out the stock 350 triples from 33mm to 35 mm using an adjustable straight reamer. This way I could keep the same front wheel and spacers and fender without having to worry about steering bearing fit. I used XL350 forks.
It was pretty easy and the reamer was only about $30 or $40.
