Swapping Headshot Ultra with Lefty

I have a Cannondale Bad Boy with a Headshok Ultra. I also have a Cannondale Jekyll 600 with a lefty fork. Can I swap the two, if the headtube is the same length? Both bikes are around 2006 models, though I do not know the actual years.

I like the Bad Boy because I was to use it as a commuter bike and I like the Lefty fork. The Jekyl 600 is for sale and I will sell it with the Headshok.

Thanks for the info,

Headshok and Lefty steerers from the US-built bikes are all the same size*. Should be a straight -up swap
