I believe the left side of the 95 crank is different from your 99. You will have issues in the charging department.
Everyone else's here their idea of the 853cc motor is a good one, I've built two of them and they ran great, I think faster than a 916.
FYI...you cannot "just bore" the ducati cylinders, they are metal sprayed, and do not accept the standard boring. While this is possible you will need the correct materials sprayed back on. Quite expensive.
If you have your heart set on rebuilding a Duc, then try a 996, as they have the most bang for the buck, or rebuild you 748 into a 853
