just wondering if anyone has converted their older drum brake swingarm to one with disk brakes. will a newer one bolt on?

A few guys here have done it.

The swingarm will bolt right on but you will need to weld new brackets for the master cylinder and brake pedal. And get a new wheel of course

If you look in my garage under the ATK, you will see pics of how I modified the caliper bracket from a 1991, to work where a 1986 drum was.
