Default Re: 20" 5 spoke MAG disk/Gear conversion

There would be a problem with the flip/flop hub shown as both sides are right hand threads. For a motorized bike where the motor drives a sprocket on the left side of the wheel, the left side needs to be left hand threads. Staton Inc. sells a rear hub that has lefthand threads, $130.00. You also might look at the Grubee HD hub and Freewheel, $50.00 sells them. You might be able to have the hub flanges removed and then bore the mag wheel to press fit the hub into it.

What motor are you using for your project? If you are using one of the various Chinese 2-strokes?, You really don't want a freewheeling driven sprocket on the left side, you will need a solid mount to bump start you motor.
