My reasoning would be to help cycle the tank a little faster then if I were to start fron scratch again!

Old tank is only 1/3 the size of new tank. With the addition of dry rocks, the old water would not make any difference when cycling as MrX had pointed out. It may even take much longer to cycle if you move your live stock too soon and you take the risk of ammonia spike. You can't use the old substrate either. If you can afford to have the additional 100 lb LR then yes you can shorten the cycling.
