Sam, most people would want the calipers at the rear, that's the optimal position and the reason all motorcycles of the past 40 odd years have them there....
I used to reverse the forks on my Honda 4's in the early 1980's to put the calipers at the rear, I had to use aftermarket front guards as the guard mounts didn't work properly backwards.
I'd just leave them as is...
