Default Virago Engine in custom lawnmower

Alright So I built this behemoth right here. Still have to connect the steering and put an engine in it. I have a 85 Yamaha virago 750. I want to put that engine in, but it's obviously a shaft drive. How do I convert it to a chain or belt drive? I have read a couple of forums about it but they are all kinda confusing and don't really give a solid answer. I've already decided this is the engine I want to use. It's on a 4 wheeler frame. It used to be a cvt belt drive but I pulled that part off with the old engine, and now it's just the gear selector with s chain leading to the rear axle. I want to put this engine in front connecting it to the gear selector via chain or belt. Is there any sprocket or kit that could do this??

No. No there is not. Really that's the reason why this forum exists.
