And if it isn't a straight fit, you can always mix/match/machine to make it fit.

Yah,but putting real brakes that stop pretty hard on forks barely strong enough for what they already have could be an issue with flex. I do agree the ATE's are kinda goofy and weak though.
It also seems like welding on the lower fork area could lead to warpage issues,I guess an machinist/welder would contend with this.
