1987 ZX-10 - Front end Swap?!? HELP!

Hello everyone,

New here. Execellent site lots of info, hopefully someone can help me.

I have a 1987 ZX-10R in decent shape.

My problems are:
- front brakes are stuck locked up ( they seemed to have pumped up and pressurized.)
- needs a front tire
- needs new front rotors (oem is very expensive for my model year)
- I was going to try and get new brake lines and I noticed that the brake line also feeds the anti-dive system in the shocks - is this still a normal set-up or was it only for a few year models?? Should I keep it as is?

I WAS THINKING that I should just get a whole new used front end on ebay.
What shocks would fit properly?
Am I crazy?
Please help.
