changing front forks

I am looking to change the forks of my 1980 honda express to a set of 1982 honda urban express. I like the look of the triple tree better. I have the new set and have noticed that the brake is on the opposite side. Does anyone know if i can just get a set of front brakes from the urban express, if the will fit in the express wheel?? i still want to stay with the 14" wheel. and would love to just change the brake mechanism, just dont know if it will fit.

please let me know thanks

Re: changing front forks

Urban has larger brakes.

Re: changing front forks

There are lots of pit bikes with hydraulic forks and a 14" front wheel with disc brakes so that's an option too.

Re: changing front forks

can you not just turn the wheel around? they're round.

Re: changing front forks

Brake tab likely won't fit because the plate is larger.
