Mount a bike motor to a surfboard Answered

I was wondering if anyone would have any advice on mounting a 50cc bike motor onto a surfboard? I don't really have any power tool, but I might be able to grab a few simple ones; Was thinking this might be a cool way to get around town instead of investing in a car or just hooking it up to a bike.
oh and is there any factors to consider in a surfboard when making this? Or should I make more of a really large skateboard type of thing and just mount everything to that?
Thanks!

You want to check the laws first, in most countries your attempt seen on the streets would cost your license and give you some hefty fines.

In most of the countries I know of you can develop any kind of thing you want and drive or fly it on a test track, open ground or that type of thing. But to operate anything on public roads whatever you have must be licensed and approved for safety. The problem is public roads are for everybody and if you operate something that is not safe you put other peoples lives at risk. Because of that they have very strict restrictions.
