The fact that its a stressed member bike rules out 99% of the motorcycles in existence (including your RSV arm idea), unless you have access to someone who knows how to brace and modify aluminum beyond recognition (and it'd be cheaper/safer/better to completely fabricate your own at that point).

A 929 will go on, a VFR 800 will work (which you can use to also run Triumph and Ducati hubs/rims).

After that, there aren't any other options that come to mind. Some of the Duc arms mount in a similar fashion, but I don't think they work because of the spacing on the back of their engines.

I've looked for a long time as I've lusted after an under braced swinger for the '54.

But take a look

954 swinger


929



Viffer 800




Compare the open middle part where it mounts on the pivot shaft to any swingarm you're looking at.



Here's an R1's



Kawi


S1000r



RSV


You'd have to cut the middle part out and then brace the swingarm so that it kept some rigidity after cutting it apart.

what you mean for "then brace the swingarm so that it kept some rigidity after cutting it apart." to add more welds to make it more strong?
i found this: CBR 929 with the CBR 1000RR swingarm,
