I am still scouring the net for hubs to no avail. The guy that makes a left side drive internally geared hub, is gonna be rich I tell ya filthy rich.

The N.V. can be reversed from what I have read. There is a major catch. Have to have new parts custom machined to get a viable left hand free wheel on the left side. The hubs design needs that free wheel sprocket. Or it will drag like mad the balls inside don't ever totally disengage.

One has to totally disassemble the hub and move stuff around as well.

Also have to consider the N.V. has a limited duty cycle at some point it has to cool down.

That said I think it is feasible.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
