Does anybody know if it's possible to exchange the front wheel and drum brake assembly off of my cl450 with the wheel and disc brake unit from my cb450 parts bike? I'd rather have the disc brakes and the rim and tire are in much better shape than the cl's. Thanks in advance!

It depends on which type of forks you have to determine if you can just swap wheels/brakes,... But the entire front ends will swap....

Is it a huge process to swap the entire front ends as opposed to just swapping the wheels (if they're the same forks.) For instance will I need special tools and hoists etc... I will post pictures of my front forks in a few minutes and maybe you can tell me if the wheel swap is possible?

Considering the differences, the most expeditious way would be to put the CB front end on the CL (CB wheel, trees, forks, and all)...It's a bolt-on proposition....
