Our current Board of Directors is considering disciplinary action of our President elect. The 2018 Board is to be installed on or before our January membership meeting (provision in our bylaws). Does a membership suspension stop or delay the installation of his up coming Presidential office or do we install him with the rest of the 2018 board to follow our bylaws and let his suspension ride out.

To get ready for a possible dispute, we do not have a provision is our bylaws that states a membership suspension makes his upcoming elected office null and void. I couldn't find anything in RONR so this is simply not true, correct? 

To make things more interesting, he is on the current Board as Honorary President (also in our bylaws). They can't  proceed with action of removal of office because you can't change history, correct?

It is certainly correct that no rule in RONR makes an election null and void on the grounds that the member is under disciplinary suspension. In fact, nothing in RONR requires an officer to be a member of the society at all.

Whether some rule in your bylaws would make this election null and void, and whether it is possible to remove an Honorary President from office, will be questions of bylaw interpretation for the society to decide.
