Maybe a 29er hub with a sprocket hub adapter? Would this work? I don't think the aluminum hub threads can hold up to the tourqe of the engine.
Any disc brake hub w/your main drive sprocket drilled & bolted to the rotor mounts outa work;

...which hub depending ofc on your dropout width & spoke count, I linked that one only to show they needn't be costly ($17 lol) & I've used the Quando brand before, they're fine for the pennies
