Default copy gearing setup from mini bike?

Hi. I've got a hawthorn step through and a 97cc engine from a doodlebug mini bike. My plan is to purchase the pmr jackshaft kit for the engine. Could I then copy the gearing setup of the minibike and paste it onto the step through bike? Meaning a 97cc engine to a jackshaft to a 60-some tooth rear sprocket.. The changing variable is wheel diameter. Is that going to matter?

Also, would there be a value to making this a front wheel drive bike?
