Default Schwinn Point Beach with Drum Brakes front & rear

I have a Schwinn Point Beach with front and read Drum Brakes (6 Speed as my 7 Speed off the original wheel wouldnt fit) I am trying to avoid adding a flywheel and believe the kit to put a sprocket wouldnt fit on the Drum Brake side anyways. Anybody have some help here. I live in Iowa and believe all I can have is a 49cc, I plan on a 4 Stroke I do not want to be mixing. I also put an after market schwinn type springer fork and an old style reproduction speedometer but cant get it to work properly (wheel may prevent it, the odometer works but not speedometer?]). Any suggestions, I also want to buy a Broad Track type Gas Tank I do not like the little peanut type tanks they come with and will probably piece together instead of buying a kit. Any suggestions welcome.
P.S. I built Bikes in the 70's when my father's Air Conditioning service was slow in the Winter to make ends meet. I laced my own wheel, but now have to re lace it with 105 gauge spokes to match the front wheel
P.S.S. I ride a Triumph 2002 American; this is for fun and to teach my son as I cannot afford another bike at this time (and it gives me something to do)
