Hey guys. Just found this site, read through most of the intros and here's my story/project, and of course, my queries:

I'm planing on building up a motorized bike, I have enough experience with bicycles, engines, and basic engineering to be able to do this but need the knowledge gained from your experience. I am planing on using a chainsaw engine as opposed to a kit for the quality/performance side and because of the price.

What would you recommend, a MTB or road frame? Size that fits me as a push bike, or smaller?
What size wheels? I am going to need more accelertion, smaller wheels, or speed, bigger wheels?
What size engine would be good (im 75kg), 30cc, 50cc, bigger?

Anything else that you think might be helpful would be great, thanks in advance.
