1988 honda hurricane

Ok guys....i stumbled upon what i think is a great find.
Its a 1988 honda hurricane, thats well, we'll say its seen better days.
Has a blown motor , all kinds of parts taken off.....but there is an upside or two.
It came with a freshly rebuilt motor from a shop, new tank, swing arm , front forks and tripple trees, rims , tires....pretty much a whole other bike without the frame.
Theres no doubt that i have some work ahead of me and i want to do something cool and upgrade a thing or two to make it the coolest hurricane around...
Has anyone here ever rebuilt one?
And if so, how did it dork out for you?
I know i have a few ideas to show everyone what kind of work I'm capable of so i can start the process of my dream to open my bike shop...


Oh yeah....and get this....
Pricetag on everything = $250
And yes, came with the title too, figured it would dang near be impossible to go wrong on that deal...lol

Ok guys ...ive kinda hit a roadblock here ...
I got the bike with a newly rebuilt motor....only to realize( yes i know i should have been able to tell, guess i got excited about price and overlooked it) that the new motor wasnt another 600....but a motor off a 1000 hurricane...
So needless to say the crankshaft and valve cover wont fit...and those are the only parts i need to finish my build...
So...i am in need of these parts if anyone has them or can point me in the right direction to get them....id sure appreciate any help i can get with this...

its a rebuilt 1000... why not just shoehorn that motor into that frame??

if you must have that 600 crank id look up part number interchangeability and hunt ebay, get it polished on a lathe, mic the journal diameters and order the correct big end bearings accordingly
