Lowering a 1985 XR200

Any help/guidance anyone would have on this subject would be greatly appreciated. I know the topic of lowering suspension has been discussed at length on these forums but I haven't been able to find a solution to lowering an older (1985) XR200.

It is about 2"-3" too tall for my wife. I've looked high and low for a lowering linkage to no avail. Since the 1993 and newer XR200's were lowered to make them more accessible to shorter riders would it be feasible to take the linkage from one of these vintage bikes and put it in the 1985? Does anyone know if this would work or not?

Thanks.
