    I have done that for a customer before and even have a setup available on hand for the whole front/rear using an inverted set with gen 2 wheel and gen 2 rear with 240 setup. Another setup with gen 2 front end and standard size 200 gen 2 rear wheel. On the second setup i'd suggest to fab up a different light then the last customer did (I didn't have a spare gen 2 light and didn't take the time to fab up the brackets to hold the original gen 1 light).

    Looks like a good way to add weight and slow down a Gen 1.
