If you have to ask, I'm afraid the answer is: it would be impossible to convert your LWB to SWB. I was under the impression, however, that the (some?) Linears were 'convertible'. This to me would mean that the box frame would already be bored and preparations made for headset installation. If you don't see any of that in evidence, then your frame is not convertible and boring it after the fact, and locating a fork with the mounting piece for the USS steering, all but impossible for a novice.
