Default Crashed up ninja

So I have a ex650 it was working perfect and had only 8k miles but i got in a minor accident and bent the forks and I dont want to repair it. But i am curious on what I can do with the engine. I would like to know if anybody knows what I can do with all these parts, basically the only damaged parts are the forks. Does any know if i could make like a retro modern cafe with a kz650 frame, and maybe even try using the rims and breaks

Don't know. But I would like to see it if you can pull it off.

You're too lazy to replace the forks, but you want to spend the time/money creating some frankenbike KZ/EX650?

does it say I am too lazy any where in my post to not replace my forks???? NO so if you have nothing productive please dont comment on my posts. Now if any one else has any productive to say please feel free to give your 2cents. I checked out a 91 ninja yesterday and it looks like i could use the wheels and breaks but i would like to know what it takes to swap out a rear subframe to do a tail swap?

Pretty sure that the easiest and most cost effective thing to do would be to....well....replace the freaking forks.
