Default New front end, olde foole

Has anyone here put an inverted dirt bike front end on a Harley. Any modifications such as different springs or settings would be welcomed.
Any statements that it cannot be done or isn't worth the effort will be quite properly ignored.
Thank you.

its been done a few times first one that comes to mind was a triumph with inverted GSXR front end, not a dirt bike but better option for inverted so you dont get the 4x4 look going

Thank you.
How about statements that it shouldn't be done. Ignoring them too?

I did it with a ZXR-6R front onto a triumph with a harley wheel. I can't recall anyone doing a dirtbike inverted most MX bikes still don't run inverted forks either. Someone famous in the chopper world can't remember who ran a deraked style bike with MX forks but they were not inverted. A few of the victory bikes come factory with inverted front ends.
