I'm looking for an adapter, I have a Rokkor lens 1.8 (used on my Minolta) and would love to use it on my Canon EOS 60D. Any suggestions?

Try searching for Minolta to Canon EOS mount adapters. I know they make them, not sure how good they work. I've used the T-Mount and Pentax to Canon EOS on my 60D and results were pretty good.

The lens flange of a Minolta is only 0.5 mm further from the image plane than the EOS. That is not enough for a conventional adapter to fit, so you have the choice of an adapter with a lens in it (optically poor, in general) or not being able to focus to infinity. You may also be able to modify the lens, but that would depend on the lens and the abilities of the person doing the modification.
