Good afternoon,
I inherited this customized TR6 project from 1971 and was thinking about converting the drum brakes to disk. I saw several threads about it but most were about pre 71 bikes. Someone aware of an easy way to swab the entire front including yoke. It’s already heavily customized, so the goal is not authenticity. If a Japanese would fit, I wouldn’t have a problem with that.
Thank you in advance for your help

Any OIF forks will fit your bike - the whole lot is needed as the wheel is wider with a disk.
I can't help with other bikes fitting but it's basically getting the correct stem size/length.

While you might be lucky to get a direct swap with only spannering to consider, a decent shop should be able to sort a custom stem fairly easily. - or just use your existing one? I don't know enough to safely recomend how you'd do that.

You could source a stem buy buying a lower yoke- tree, from eBay, then sell your complete original forks.
