Default Question from new guy

I'm new to the forum, so please forgive me if I ask dumb questions or cover ground everyone is familiar with. I am on the verge of building my first bike. The Illinois law was just changed to make unlicensed bikes with less than 50cc motors legal to ride anywhere you can ride a pedal bike. Previously, you couldn't license a home made bike. Therefore, you could ride one on the street.

Here is my first, but probably not my last question. I found a 50cc engine on eBay: 49cc Motor Bicycle kit Motorized BIKE GAS ENGINE Z50 with the brand name BoyGoFast. It has a "Buy It Now" price $99.95. The engine is built in China. The item number is 190412084636. Is anyone familiar with this engine? It looks like the kit would be pretty simple, and if you purchased a new bike it wouldn't have to have great components. It would just need to be sturdy.

I'm looking for any advice or help that you guys can offer. Thanks.
