Upside Down forks for 1975 GL1000

I just bought a '75 GL1000 project bike and I was wondering if anybody had ever done a front fork upgrade using upside down forks?

Not heard of any upside down forks fitted but have heard that someone has fitted cb600 ones.

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

Forks, brakes and 16" front wheel are from a Kawasaki GPz900.
