Default Swapping front end

Could someone tell me if a 04 kingpin front end be put on a 03 or 04vegas?
Is the kingpin forks longer?
Do both models have the same frame?

Tatt it looks like you kept the skinny front tire and opted to not upgrade to dual binders. Might I ask how and why you did it that way...other than price?lol

Not sure why he stayed with the 21, but a KP only has a single brake on the front

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

I like the looks of the 21 also. What you have done looks good. What kind of fender did you find to put on it? Custom I am guessing because the KP would look weird without mods and arms would need to be extended for the 21 hammer would look good but same situation on the mounting arms.

Do you have to change the lower triple tree or both when you swap a 2010 vegas 8 ball front end to a Kingpin / Hammer 8 ball front end?
Are the vegas and KP frames the same?
Thanks
