Default New rider with custom chop

Hello All,
Im new to the forum and am starting to build a custom street tracker style motorized bicycle. I will be building the frame from other frames and tube steel. I plan on using an old 49cc wing-ding with a jackshaft to an eight speed rear cassette. Im in the process of building an inverted springer from an old chopper style triple tree fork. I'll be running duel disk brakes so the jackshaft will be mandatory. The bike is going to be full suspension using a custom rear swinger, shock undecided. Probably will be customizing a fuel tank and fab up a seat pan with a fiberglass tail. This is going to take a while, 6 months or more. Pictures will come as my progress builds. I have some ideas im sure i will need help with and have a fair amount of skill to offer others on the forum. Im also a professional bicycle mechanic with over 10 years of experience.
I have a questions for now as I plan it out.

Can i get a larger cylinder and piston kit to move up the size from 49cc to 80cc or just buy a larger engine?
Thanks, Jon (LOPEE)
