The kit as a whole won't work, but elements of it will work for the application.

How much for the front freewheel assembly with cranks, jackshaft, bearings, and gears/sprockets?

I really don't want to buy the kit just to cannibalize it and toss the stuff I can't use.

Don't need engine mounts, jackshaft plates, etc.
If it's worth building, it's worth over-building.
