I recently picked up a 71 honda CL100, from I guy I work with. The bike looks like hell but was only 40 bucks. I want to build a cafe racer with it and I was thinking of going 2-stroke. I want to get either a cr125 or cr250 dirt bike engine. It will mostly depend on what will fit and what i can find. My questions were is there an immediate problem with this idea, and how does one power a head light with a dirt bike engine.

I don't know how far you are able to travel, but if you check out e-bay in mtorcycle parts, do a search for parts bikes. I found several 125-250 2 strokes in WI and IL. You might want to consider a Yamaha DT 125 or 175. They have full electrics and would be a good srting point. The later 175s even had monoshock rear suspension that you might be able to adapt. It could all be a good project. I see you are at UW- Plattville, and one of the bikes I saw was in Reedsburg, so not too far away.
