I inherited a 1987(?) Schwinn World that is too big. However, I want to swap the frame with another steel frame that will accept all the parts and is roughly a 54. Can anyone make any recommendations?

It's probably not worth the effort of swapping such low spec parts (suntour 5 speed, stem shifters, etc) to another frame. If you are under such an extreme budget it would probably be better to sell what you have and then buy something else that fits. Even a 20 year old bike with 8 speed Ultegra would be a way better bike to train on.
