Default 87cc Maytag 2 Cylinder 2 Stroke Engine

Picked up a this motor on ebay, with plans to attempt to install it on a Moon Dog bicycle in the frame if I can make it fit... I am going to lace a whizzer sheave to the rear wheel. The motor produces 5/8hp at 1600 rpm, I plan to make an expansion chamber for it and possibly a different fuel system.
Here is someone elses install:
YouTube - Maytag Bicycle
*He eliminated the factory coil and is using an accel cdi.
*Dont know what carburetor he is using
*He removed the gas tank, flywheel, and kick start system, but installed a homemade flywheel on the opposite end of the engine

The motor I got has some play in one of the bearings so I will probably tear it down and rebuild it.
