1996 CR125/250 Frame swap?

I have a complete 1996 CR125 with a blown motor. I would like to get a 250 frame and build it as a 250. My questions is: will all of the the bodywork and suspension fit on the 250 frame? The 125 is in great shape minus the engine and I can get a 250 frame for less that $100. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Plastics are the same, suspension, I am not sure about. Forks are only 43mm on the 125 I believe, but the clamps should swap over if you were really wanting to use the smaller forks. Not sure about the geometry differences though. Not sure about the shock either.

No one else has tried this? C'mon!

Yes, I believe the 96 250 forks are 46mm

OK, I picked up a 94 frame and need to know what year engines will fit. I think 92-01, but am not for certain. Thanks for any help.
