Well, then you should use them. Budget wise, that is.

Unless you are money bags and want to spend, spend, spend.

I'd say use them. Of course if you want to raise the bike up a bit being a tracker you could go with something a bit longer but a period correct upgrade like cb750 forks

Unless you have a machinist buddy be ready to spend for a modern front end.  You can go a little cheaper if you use the matching wheel to the forks, but if you want spokes it'll cost even more.  I made my own stem, modified a hub, and had it laced to a 17" wheel, still cost close to $1k.  Breakdown, forks $200, stem $0, hub $20, bearings/seals $40, rim and lacing $550, rotor $35, caliper $40 etc.

Man thatís a nice looking bike as it is, you should put it back together, tune it up and ride it.

I would personally choose a less complete example for a custom build. But thatís me.
