Question Preparing for first build

Great site! I found this forum last night and stayed up way to late going over all the info here, I'd really like to become a part of this community.

I got my hands on a Schwinn Stingray chopper, and I'm having problems deciding on the best engine to go with it. I'm trying to find an 100+cc engine and a 3-5 speed gearbox with a suicide shifter, that can be mounted without altering the frame, if possible.

I saw a very sweet looking chopper built by Crazy horse here and I'd like a setup similar to that. I don't plan on spending more than $1,000 on the project.

And the original seat is very uncomfortable, any recommendations on seats I could sit on for more than a few minutes?

Would the cops harass me if the end result looks to much like a motorcycle? And would I get tickets for riding at highway speeds on it?

Two engines I'm looking at right now:
LIFAN 125cc
110cc with semi-auto 3 speed and reverse
