Default 05 C90 frame swap??

Hello, new here and looking for info, I have a like new 05 C90 boulevard with 4000 miles that has no title, It is NOT stolen, it was purchased from a garage estate and had always been used by the owner with his dealer plate, He had towed it in as a recovery and it was never claimed, it shows up on carfax as purchased in 05 and no info since, it does show a lien holder who I contacted across the country and they said there is nothing they can do after all this time, the lender has been sold many times since.
I have exhausted all options, little that there was, and am now considering getting a good frame with a title and swapping everything over, Am I correct in thinking this will solve the title issue? Any obstacles in doing the swap.
Also in searching for a frame is there any variations in an 05 C90 blvd. frame, I've seen C90t and a VL1500 listed as a boulevard frame, are they identical?

Thank you for any info.

What a pity that you can't get the title. As distasteful as it may be, it might be worth a few bucks to ask a lawyer about this. You're talking about a lot of work to switch everything over from one bike to the other. But if you can get a frame with a good title, I can't see any way that that would not work. As for differences in model years, see if you can find a service manual online. They're usually pretty good at pointing out subtle differences from one model year to the next. Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck to you and keep us posted as to what transpires.
