I'm no expert, but I would think you would need to change the 90 degree drive in the rear and maybe the swing arm. In the front, the brakes and maybe the forks (including the triple tree) would need to be changed. There are a lot of differences between the tow bikes. The '83 does have advanced suspension and brakes over the '78. It may be a worthwhile upgrade. but heck, why not just get an '83? I'm not sure if it is a direct swap. I have the swing arm out of my '81. I can measure the width if you want.

All years of 1100 rims will interchange with no modifications but I don't think they will fit a 1000.
