There is no way you are going to get a 1500 engine in a 750 frame. You would literally have to build a new frame, and frame building is not for the inexperienced. It is an art, and requires a LOT of skill. I own a Rebel 250, tiny little bike, very simple, and belong to a Rebel forum. I have seen many Rebel frames destroyed by someone trying to build a chopper or bobber, or a homemade hardtail.
The performance of the 750 and 1500 engines is almost exactly the same, the only differences are the 1500 has more torque, and turns slower at highway speeds. If you want one, just look for one on Craigslist, or Cycle Trader. You won't find many for sale, either people are not selling them, or there are not many left. Remember, that engine had the plastic oil pump gear that caused so much trouble in the Classic, I don't think the failures were that common on the BUBF version.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
