They afore mentioned co sells kits although they fit a lot easier under a clubamn front end than a roundnose. Ther's also the KAD 8 port head for your a-series block that's cheaper and totally rips! KAD usually build them with Yamaha R-1 pistons and rods!
A friend of mine and I talked about doing the switch to a honda motor for years but never got enough money in hand at the right time to try it.
There is also supposed to be a company in the states that converts minis to a honda motor. My buddy mentioned a website to me but I can't remember the url - sorry.
