Unhappy Fed up need some help

Hi i'm new to motorized bicycling. I don't have much money so I tried to go the cheap way and have had lots of problems. I bought a skyhawk 80 and put it on a mongoose mtn bike from k-mart. Had a very hard time finding an affordable mtn bike with enough frame clearance. The Engine was difficult to mount cause the bike has a large oval front frame tube. Have had to modify almost every piece that went on the bike. Got it all together and the chain doesn't even come close to lining up. Got it close as I could and every 10 feet the chain pops and gets lodged between the sprocket and spokes and bent the spokes and broke the chain twice. It seems like the sprocket needs to be touching the spokes to even get it close. I have had this thing for months and haven't even gotten it started yet. I'm ready to trash the whole thing.
