Could This One Be Motorized

Just purchased a rare chainless bike with an enclosed shaft transferring power from pedals to the 7 speed Nexus rear wheel hub.
Now wondering what to do with it after doing repairs?
Looks to be top quality construction but can find nothing on date, manufacturer, or history on the Internet. Any clues anyone?

Yes your bike can be motorized
2 stroke or a 4 stroke Motorbike Engine Kit will bolt on.
A sprocket for chain drive or a sheave for belt drive will work on the left side.

Of course the Shaft Drive will be for pedal power only

Thanks for this, there are enough ideas to start me thinking. A small four stroke sounds interesting, maybe with a freewheeling sprocket.
