I need help to build a gas powered mountain board! Answered

So, I want to find instructions on how to build a gas powered mountain board for my boyfriend as a surprise for...absolutely no reason. He saw an electric mountain board in the popular science magazine and now he wants one. Here's the link to the article: http://www.popsci.com/diy/article/2008-02/motorized-skateboard-speed-happy-gearheads
I can't find any information on how to build a board like this (or maybe I'm looking in the wrong place). So if anyone can come up with a tutorial of sorts, I'd really appreciate it. And if it wouldn't be too much trouble, please include where we can buy any of the parts. Thanks!
