I had to eliminate the ignition switch on my '85 Goldwing. It was bad, and all I could find were 30 year old used ones that probably weren't any better. The switch turns on so many things that I decided to break it up into 3 different circuits and used 3 toggle switches. I left the old defective switch in place, and the toggles are mounted in the fairing. People are used to seeing Goldwings covered with all kinds of stuff, so I don't think they would attract any attention, and I can't see anyone wanting to steal this bike anyway.
I would reconsider the hardtail conversion. You don't know what pain is until you've ridden a hardtail. Most hardtails never get ridden, they are just show bikes.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
