Go to Motoredbikes.com and Motorbicycling.com    Find the gear ratio calculators there and use the search functions extensively to learn how to build your vehicle.  There are many great ideas, photos, videos and experienced advisors in those forums.  Study and learn as much as you can before you start asking questions.  You're more likely to get members answering your questions if they can tell you have done some homework.  Personally I favor pusher trailers.  Motoredbikes.com has a separate subforum for those.

Why such a small bike?  12 inch?
