I know it's a dumb question but can it be done?

It's an easy swap of hardware.

If it is a stock type bike and your going to just cruise easy, ride it as an EL before you tear it down. You should find it to be the easiest starting
smoothest pulling motor you've ever been around. YES at 61" it'll have
less horsepower than a 74", but with the heavy flywheels & cam profile
it'll have useable torque.
If you have to boost the cubes & power, you can send me the old wheels
instead of tripping over them in your garage/shop!
