Default Engine on a: Schwinn Sidewinder

I have a Schwinn Sidewinder in mechanically perfect condition; I have just rebuilt it and replaced all no-working parts, oiled, etc. I want to mount a reasonably powered engine to it and keep the deraler, which probably means 1-4hp as much more would break the deraler.

Here are my requirements:
Must allow shifting.
Must be "DIY"-able
Must be cheap.

And "if possible.."s
Mid-mounted (within the V frame)
From an old lawnmower or weedwhacker

This might not be possible, as I am on a tight budget, but help is appreciated.

Also: if there is a under $40 universal engine "kit" that I am unaware of, I could use it as well.
