Would this work?
I got looking at the build I am doing and tried to come up with something for a drive to the rear wheel other than the stock chain/sprocket using the gears and sprockets already on the bike.
I was thinking if the engine drive sprocket were on the right side of the engine, I could sling a chain to the pedal gear and that would drive the original bike chain to the rear cassette and I could shift like I was pedaling.
However I have not see a right side drive motor, so why not put all the original bike chain, sprockets on the left side? That way I think my idea would work. Somehow you could make it so the pedals do not turn while the engine is running... Or....take the pedals completly off?
So has anyone done this yet?... I'm terribly interested in this idea.
