Since you are considering 5s box, why not get a 5S CI electra? & give it Std 350 trims.
RE sold 4S-LH shift models in the US before 5S box was offered. you could have a look at getting whatever bits required for conversion. Though these were not same as regular 4S-RH in shift quality, it offered a solution for LH shifter needs.

Hey all,
I know this reply is very late but i had done this conversion. Im attaching a photo. Cost about 2k at chennai including shifting the brake lever to the left side. Mine is a 5s Electra. Desideep is right that it makes no difference which year model CI you buy. the newer ones are of better quality. The old bike myth is just an old wives tale. Rennjit's suggestion that you buy a 5S electra is good considering all the mods you want to do.

PS: Making the right hand conversion will make the 5s leaky as you are drilling right into the oil tank of the gearbox.

Don’t we need to open and reassemble the gear box for this? If you have any photos during operation, please post. Ho the left side opening sealed?
