    I think a 2hp engine would work. If you gear it to go around 30-35mph it should be fine.

    You will not have to kill the engine when you stop the bike if you use a centrifugal clutch (standard go kart clutch).

    You also have to rig up a throttle to the engine and I bet the engine is governed to only rev to 3600 rpm or so, but you should be able to disable it so it can rev to around 5200-5500 RPM.

    than you for tish dicription . but if I do not have this centrifugal clutch .

    do you you mean the wheel will not rotate until the engine Reach to 5000 rpm
