Default Chainsaw Bike

Hi,
I have been work for 3 days now on getting a chainsaw mounted on a mountain bike. (behind the seat) All I have left is to get the chain on. Which i am running staight down do the rear wheel. I hoping for at least 10 mph. Oh I forgot the chainsaw had a 12 inch bar on it and is call a homelite xl-2.
Heres some pictures:

does the chain saw have a centrifugal clutch on it, if so you should leave the pedals on. the motor mite have a hard time getting of the mark.this is where you can use the pedals, but it will be good to cruise along with
