Default Hello from Connecticut!

I started at this probably the way most people do. A neighbor was giving away a 33cc poulan micro chainsaw. I heard of people putting these on their bikes so snagged it. He said he couldn't get it to start but on closer inspection he never hit the on switch it seemed. I got it started in a few minutes.

So I have an old bike rack from my garage welded to my bikes seat and am thinking of putting a bike sprocket on the chainsaw and running a chain from it to another sprocket on the rear tire. The only problem I have is, well, I don't know how to go about replacing a the sprocket on the saw. It's an outboard clutch.

I would go friction drive but my back tire is knobby as I'm using a mountain bike/

Any help is appreciated and I'm glad to be here
