If the output shaft is 5/8" then you could just buy a friction drive kit without the engine or a q-matic from azbill but check with him first to see if it will work. Most drive assemblies that use the engine type you have use a clutch assembly on a 5/8' drive shaft. www.staton-inc.com
has em so does www.thatsdax.com
the 4 stroke area mentioned before has lots of builds for you to look at to decide. Please feel free to ask questions along the way and welcome to the motorized bicycle hobby!
<<<<this is a friction drive
I just remembered you do know these are illegal in NY state? Off road I think is ok tho.
