Default Hello - building kit bike to Triumph Bicycle

I picked up a kit on ebay, supposed 80cc kit from powerkingshop. I build/fix restore Triumph motorcycles and I have a cool 3 speed Triumph Bicycle, I think made by Raleigh and want to make it a baby Triumph.
The motor seems to fit the frame fairly well but the Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub looks way too big for the sprocket to fit onto. I could use some help and advice in the is area. I cut the rubber gasket to get it on the inside of the spokes and it does not fit all the way around the hub. I have considered changing this to a coaster brake hub for the rear, as I have a hub, spokes and a rim but I'm not very experienced with truing wheels. One other problem I have is the gas cap does not want to come off the tank. I think I can get that solved though. I have searched the forum for Sturmey Archer / 3speed etc info and I haven't found much. Any advice/help/etc appreciated. Here are some pics of my mock up.
