I'd love for it to be that simple, I already have a mount on the front forks.

Shifting is a tough one.
Suicide shifters sure do look cool and would work for the application but I prefer to keep both hands on the bars whenever possible.
What I meant was using a couple of V-brake calipers was to squeeze your sprocket, but V-brakes front and rear work for the most part well if you are not gong crazy speeds.

An electric solenoid attached to the shift lever out might work.
I gave that some thought for my MotoPed but just made a double side foot shift lever.

Cumbersome, but at least it's a down foot push to up and down shift.
