Question Getting started

hi all,
I'm very glad to have found this forum. I've just started looking around for a bike motor and am slightly overwhelmed not having any knowledge or experience. I have a Schwinn Varsity (1 speed, disc brakes) that I'd like to add a relatively inexpensive kit (<300) to. I'd rather keep the volume down than go fast. I used to have a Honda Hobbit moped and I didn't like getting passed by bicycles over 15mph or scaring pedestrians after I bored a hole in the muffler for speed. I like the idea of getting to church 20 miles away without breaking a sweat. I am wondering if I'm way off base in my expectations or am I a fool for wanting to do this to a classic bike in good condition? Thanks in advance... without any help I probably would have ordered a black stallion from King's motor bikes and called it good.
