I think you'll be okay with a 2-stroke. They're about as simple in construction as engines get.
And with time and experience, some experimentation, and your wife's patience, you may build your bike into something awesome. Check out my album; I didn't start with that bike, but it happened eventually. And if you think mine's cool, you should see some of the others that our fellow forum members have built. There are some rockin' rides here, and some serious ingenuity being passed around. Dive on in and soak it up, my friend.
