You could use a left side belt for pedal drive, or maybe a friction roller that engages/disengages.
I'd have to take a closer look at how these new shaft drives mount to the rear part of the frame, but I'm sure with a little modification it would work.
Any suggestions?
Jeez. Belts, teeth, well-lubed shafts, and "modification". Excuse me for a while. I have to go talk to my wife about something. I may be back later.
