A friend of mine was a Pag dealer. He would buy bare frames and put 350-450cc engines in them. Just an idea for your GS450 or Vulcan 500 motor.
Projects
74 Yamaha TX650

72 Honda SL350 desert sled it would make Steve McQueen puke!
3 Assorted Honda CL 72 scramblers in a million pieces
3 Harleys in constant state of sorrow and a Buell
1978 Yamaha Chappy 80 burning up the highway
Cut my motor in half Sportster to Shortster
