Hey Barry. Check out cheez fickenworth on Facebook, and I believe he has his own webpage now. Anyway, he sells the PK80 engines, which are a good combination of inexpensive and reliable.

Make sure if you're building it for her to ride on the roadways that you check the local laws on motorized bikes. Does it count as a motorized bike with 3 wheels? Do you need lights and mirrors? Is there a top speed limit? All these are things I'd worry about if I were to build one for someone else.

Also, a trike is somewhat heavy. Is she too old to pedal start the engine? If so, consider a pull start and centrifugal clutch (an extra $65 total for those items).
Never stop wrenching
