once the pulley assembly put into the axle, you can have the idea that between pedals/axle and pulley/sprocket are independence due to the internal bearing.
here is some pic and let me know for more detail required
Be cool if one could incorperate a freewheel in there you could pedal start it.
Nice build love the simplisity of it,GREAT JOB............Curt
