Default Would it work if I ...

Could I reinforce my back carrier drop the engine on it strap it down use full thread bolt on the drive shaft put a couple of stop nuts on it center in a rubber wheel to the rim bind it in with a wing nut and use that for a friction drivr snd don't half to miss around with heavey channel and parts to make it go horzontal?
Will cause fatigue on the shaft and wigle it to death?

give it a shot if you want, but honestly using the rim as a surface for a friction drive isnt likely gonna be a good idea.

Even knurled rollers pressed down on the tire will slip under some conditions so I dont see any way to drive the rim and make that work.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
