Converting my dl650 front to sv650

Hello, my girl got smashed up good and I finally have her striped down. In doing so I realized with just the forks and handle bars on and no light, plastic or bird cage that it looked incredibly similar to front of an sv650 and looked pretty sweet. Fix the mess and add a headlight and really it would look pretty good except for the gas tank. I'm wondering if anyone has seen it modified to do so? Ie gauge cluster. And probably the most important. Would a gas tank swap fit? In manufacturing u want to standardize if possible and beable to swap pieces to build on a larger scale. Was hoping Suzuki followed those practices. Anyways will look at the one yard. But would be cool to hear ideas, suggestions.

You don't even need to change the tank:
