Hi James,

Your probably best following these set of plans:
It will fit up to a 250cc engine with no difficulty. It also allows plenty 
of room for moving the seat, engine and pedals to suit. I suggest you draw 
out the chassis on the ground (or a sheet of plywood) using some chalk.

Depending on what money you have, you can choose to make the axles, and 
steering parts yourself. You will need to buy things like the bearings. 
For the rear axle, you can get pillar block bearings which you can then 
simply bolt to the chassis. See:

Best of luck,
