Default Which way to go

I bought a 70cc HT from DAX and intend to stick it on something to sell for profit to see if I can make any. I have an old FLYING O (Oklahoma Tire and Supply Co.) that is a lightweight 26 with a 3-speed rear hub with coaster brake as well as calipers. I would have to drop the rear caliper so I would have room for the clutch lever. Is this a good plan? I suppose there are lots of motorbikes based on lightweight bikes, but I just have to accept it. The new DAX motors are cute with chrome tanks and the alloy clutch handle with lock pin and killswitch in chrome-ended grips and chrome muffler. They seem like a good deal at $119. What do people do for a clutch handle when they use a 10-speed?
I suppose it could be mounted inboard or something.
