HI,

With a little work most anything is possible....an older Sturmey Archer hub can be modded to drive off the left side and provide gearing BUT probably the best and easiest method is a jack shaft to the right side to utilize existing gearing, a front freewheeling crank would allow pedal use and keep the pedals from spinning while under engine power....A kit to do the latter is available from SBP to the left (see sponsors).

Hope this helps you.

Good luck on your build.

Andrew
