i have a couple of the gx200 clones like you're thinking of using and i can tell you for a fact that they are way to heavy to be making a front wheel friction drive out of, and the power and torque of these engine will literally shred a bike tire in just a few rides as a friction drive, way to much power and way to much weight.
