Default Just getting started

I've always liked tinkering with stuff and getting back into biking has brought about the desire to build a motorized bicycle. So I recently acquired a 1961 AMF Roadmaster for 20$ for what I figured would be a good starting point.
I'm thinking of doing a homemade springer front and some other frame changes as well.
I've seen but haven't been able to find a source for a kit that drives the crank gear, so that you only have the one chain going to the rear wheel. I'm beginning to think I stumbled onto a custom set up.

Well, here's how the bike sits, basically stock:

Thanks guys for all the good info and ideas!

If I'm supposed to use a smaller photo I apologize and will do so in the future.
