Default First motorized bike for city use

I'm looking to put together a motorized cruiser for driving around the city and figured I should ask here before making my first purchase.

26'' Micargi Rover GX Men's Beach Cruiser Bicycle -
Engine kit:
Black Grubee SkyHawk Angle Fire 80cc Bicycle Engine Kit EPA Certified
Extra brakes:
Nashbar Mechanical Mountain Bike Disc Brake Set : Deals & Discounts on Bike Disc Brakes From Nashbar

I plan on adding a disc brake to the front for some extra stopping power and also because having a single point of failure on something as crucial as brakes makes me nervous.

I really like the simplicity of just having a single gear but was wondering if this would be problematic trying to get up to speed to start the motor.

Just wanted to stop by and post this to make sure there's nothing big I'm overlooking/should be aware of.
