Have 81 interstate, 1100, was damaged on rt timing cover, repaired by previous owner. engine knocks below 2000 rpm. Would 86 1200 engine fit this frame? Would rather swap engines than rebuild, any thoughts?

First, no, the 86 won't 'drop in'.
But like Mowerdoc said, this sounds more like a carb problem. Engine knock would be more pronounced on the road @ 3~4K rpm or higher.
