I assume the saw is a homelite chainsaw?
There are issues-
the clutch is on backwards and uses a different size pitch chain than bikes use, and it needs to be geared down a lot, like with a jackshaft.
I might add, they are super noisy. Here in NY, gas engines powering bikes are not legal. If anything, you would want super-quiet if you run gas power.
Oh, and Welcome to Motorbicycling!
