    I can't see why you can't buy the parts online and import to repair your engine.
    In Pakistan I would imagine the engine swap being cheaper due to extremely cheap labour rates but I think a little time and effort to get the correct motor for the frame is the way to go....

    I think Pakistan is on the OFAC list (it's been a while since I checked) so nothing may be getting in or out from a western country.

    Ok they are not, but there are many people and organizations inside that country who are. Shouldn't make shipping any more difficult than any other Middle East country. From what I am reading about people who import car parts, there is a high duty on landed foreign postage, And a high theft rate.

    Hammadd, if you want my advise it would be buy another of the same bike that runs and use this first bike as a parts bike. If parts are as hard to get as you say they are you are going to need a parts bike anyway.

    there are two Honda parts specialists in Pakistan: shah bros and atlas Honda, I have no idea where they are since your country doesn't seem to use postal codes, but there are there. If they can get parts so can you.

    The Honda DOHC engine is the best part of those early 80's motorcycles. If maintained it will rack up decent mileage. Without parts or service they go to junk very quickly.

    The only way to own a motorcycle for cheap is to work on it yourself, and that is only if you have the tools. If you are paying someone to work on it for you it will get expensive quickly.

    As as far as your engine swap goes, I think the 1984 cb750 police bike was shaft drive which will not work in your frame. In one of your pics is a picture of the Honda shaft drive. If the new engine you found is not shaft and it is chain, and it will bolt up to the engine mounts in your frame, then it is fine to swap.
