XR70 Forks on an XR50

Hey guys, I've mounted up some 70 forks on my son's 50. But I can't figure out how to make the stock 50 hub fit the 70 forks. Is there a common mod for this?

Also, I seem to have an interference problem against the engine with the stock 70 fender. I tried to use the stock 50 fender, but the bolt pattern is different. Any ideas? Thanks. -Budso

i had to shave down the tab on the inside of the left fork leg for the 50 hub to go on. you will also have to make a bracket for the brake line, some people just hose clamp it which will also work. use the 50 front fender just drill new holes.
