Front End Swap

So Sweatmachine has his SV650 swap, seen a GSXR 650 and a Street Triple swap too...

What's the most popular front end swap for the Bonneville? What's the most highly recommended and what do we think would be good options?

I'm thinking a Daytona 675 front end would be pretty sweet!

The Honda CBR 600F3 swap seems pretty common..?

If you do a front end swap I would be interested in purchacing your OEM front end...
Got a project in works...

The easiest is the F3, forks are the same diameter and supposedy the same spacing so they are a straight swop into the Triunph triple trees.

the CBR swap sure seems to be easiest according to what I've read. The sv650 swap needs machine work. The upside to the sv650 swap is the availability of parts.

In the middle of the Honda F3 swap now, I'm doing forks, front and back wheels. Front end is a piece of cake as has been said, it just fits straight in. The rear needs machine work and new spacers made up as the wheel sits too far to the left.
