Best Answer

The front is (probably) a direct fit.

The rear probably not.

Track rear Wheels are likely to use a narrower axle spacing than a multi-speed rear.

If it's a steel frame, it can be respaced - Cold set - to a narrower spacing, and the dropouts realigned.

There's a limit on how many times you can do this, so Think carefully if you'd ever want to turn it back into multi-speed again.
