Smile engine kit on mountain bike

I bought a grubee starfire II 49cc dual start(pedal or pull start)$149+30shipping
I bought a 26" roadmaster sx sport mountain bike $20
I modified the bike to get the engine to fit
i found the secret to shortening the chain(cut the chain link with a jigsaw or hacksaw,remove the number of links you want,break off the cut links with pliers-they come right off and the pins come right out,then slide the master link on)
Before you put the sparkplug boot on,unscrew the sparplug top tip off,or it wont fit on
I put my gastank on a rack that was already on the back of bike
It took me a week to do the bike,because i had problems with my pedals and frame
im waiting til tommorrow to start the bike for the first time
i'll post pictures soon
