Another thought....will the frames be able to swap? And is this a doable thing for me in a basic garage?
Now you need to just make some simple measurements to verify your plans. You need to pay attention to the body mount locations. First off, check from the centerline of your third member and measure everything from this central point under neath your MC and then follow the same route under the GP.
I really do not think of this as being a good swap anyways. The MC chassis is built alot tougher then the GP chassis. Unless your MC is all rotted out from rust. Then you are at the mercy of your mounting locations. Your biggest worry would actualy be the lenght of the GP chassis.
It might be shorter by about 6" to 10".
