Default Trying to get my wife riding

So, I built a pretty decent bike (again). My first build was a huffy Panama Jack, and it was GREAT. Now, that I have some experience, I built a nice mountain bike, 66cc Chinagirl, SBP Jackshaft, with front and rear disc brakes hooked to the single pull lever. Finally got it tuned great, and I'm pretty happy with it.

My wife finally got used to riding twist and go scooters. I want her to get into riding the motorized bicycle. She rode it, and didn't like it (gears, clutch, too large).

So, I went and bought a pullstart kit, and a Centrifugal clutch kit for the bike. I'm hoping she will ride it more often now.

Once I get my Centrifugal clutch hooked up, I am going to go back to the font brakes on right, rear brakes on left. It'll be set up just like a scooter (but with different gears).

What do you guys think? You think that'll make it easier?

Does anyone have any experience with this?

I'll post pictures when it's done!!
