I need to revise my answer further.

Whilst you might just be able to engineer the snowflake wheel  to fit in between K100 fork legs, you would have to perform other engineering miracles to ever get the brakes working.

The k100 forks are significantly narrower than R65 forms and the snowflake was specifically designed to be interchangeable with spoked wheels - it is therefore very wide.

I suspect that even using the K100 brembos, whch have different centering to the F08s on the R65 that you would be all out of room, you would have to make new disc carriers, the K100 ones would not work as the snowflake hub is wider.
