So while I was changing out my oil today and the dreaded bolt is suddenly loose feeling happened. Upon further inspection the drain plug hole cracked on both sides. I was wondering if anyone here had a transmission cover for sale. My bike is a 1980 CX500 Custom. Part number is 11360-449-000

You can use the earlier 415 numbered cover too. The only difference between the 449 and 415 covers is the addition of a reinforcing rib across the front of the 449 cover.

A bit o' TIG round the plug hole a possibility?
You (maybe) can then re-thread even if not a std drain plug....and go a magnetic plug (yeah I know aluminium isn't magnetic but cover all bases.....:p)

Just a option...spares prices here are going up.
In the US you may find a cover at less than the TIG cost.
Good luck.....
