Question Loss in power along with oil/fuel “popping” out of air intake: Blown head gasket??

Hi guys, I'm kinda new to motorized bicycles. I installed an 80 cc kit on my motorized bicycle which went smooth.

The bike has been running well for around 8 weeks, and ride it everyday! It is awesome! I have been taking it slow for engine break in purposes and have been following the instructions that came with the kit regarding engine break in, and all was going well until today. I took it out for a spin and after about 20 min it lost power and started spitting fuel/oil mix out the air intake on the carb with loud "popping". It seemed as if the engine was back firing out the carb or something?

I'm curious if this has ever happened to anyone and what exactly the problem might be?

Any advice much appreciated :-)
