I just throw some Rid X in there every few months.

I get this all the time too, have met some very interesting people.

Che Guevara tried it on a Norton, 2-up. Would have made it if he had the $ to keep fixing it. Any bike will do. But you being 6'4"... unless you want to make a point (any bike can do it, old bikes can do it, etc.) you would probably be more comfortable on a bike that would better fit your height.
Whenever we are riding, we are an ambassador to our sport

I'd rather be riding!

A friend of mine did this. It requires a bit more than just an engine swap. If anyone is truly interested in such a mod I can get more info from him and pass it along.
