VN1500 MeanStreak forks

Does anyone here know if the VN1500 Meanstreak front suspension head bearings and races will fit a VN750 frame?

I can't remember but if you are looking at the stem on the mean streak ,check the diameter and length of it against the dimensions of the VN steering stem ans if they are the same use the 750 bearings instead of the 1500's if it is a fuzz longer on the forks you are looking at you could get a machine shop to make you a bearing shim for cheap.Those are some very good forks and I love the idea of those stiff upside down forks on a 750,It would be a large improvement over stock 750 front suspension,If you are really interested and the steering stems are completely the wrong dia. and you cant find the bearings and races,for a little more money a machinist could take a 750 lower tree (from ebay)and put the steering stem into the lower mean streak tree provided the stems are very close in length,let me know if you go for it.I think it is a very interesting modification idea,Denny
