assuming you have a metal drive wheel, weld a nut on the end of it. just hook your drill up to it. You could also get fancy and make a pulley for you drill end and run a belt over the end of your drive wheel assuming you have a little left over. Also you could put a cut off extension for your sockets into the drill and put a large spark plug socket on the end and put it against the tire I suppose. In any case you need to block the tire off the ground.

Just my suggestions You don't need to turn it too fast and probably don't want to.

Assuming your drill can spin fast enough, then yes.

On my chinagurl, a drill can't spin the shaft fast enough to get the bike to start.
