Any advice for putting a motor on a ladies bike?

Thats a frame I built, a Huffy Reatta. Engine fit well but was high enough to need a fuel pump to feed reliably.
Fuel pump was no issue to install. You can see the pump under the seat.

I see exactly why you needed that fuel pump.

You will notice that the pink bike pictured in post before you is using a standard tank that is also raised higher than yours allowing for gravity feed.

Yours is on a different type of rear rack that is mounted lower as well as using a slim tank that also sits lower making it necessary to have a fuel pump.

Your engine is not sitting any higher than the one on the pink bike, but your rear rack and tank are definitely lower than the pink one.
 
The suspension front end raised the bike a good bit lowering the rear. Originally it sat more level. Fed ok for about half the tank. Pump took care of it.
