Even easier than that, keep a few zipties with you. You can just get the chain off the wheel cog, and zip tie it to the frame, for free coasting. If the cops say you can't have a motor, just say its a decorative effect, and point out that the chain isn't on it to motor with.

Back to stock bicycle. kinda
Really good tip for when your motor dies and you gotta switch to pedaling.. else theres just too much friction.
