Exclamation New to motorized bicycle and mixte frame help?

Hi i am new to this hobby. Last weekend i built a motorized bike with my cousin and it was so fun i had to get one. I have ordered one from I have my moms old cannondale mixte bicycle. i think it would look very cool and ride really well if i could mount it on this bike. The only issue is i think the front triangle might be a little small. Please help me. Any engineers have any good ideas of how to mount it? Could it go in top of the 2 top tubes? any custom cylinder heads that might be smaller? Can i shave down some of the cooling flaps to fit the engine. when the engine arrives next week i will let you know more dimensions, just wanted to get a head start on the build.
Also it has 27 Inch wheels, any special gearing i should use?
