So ik that the Cranbrook is not the highest quality bike to motorized but I did it anyway... that being said to eliminate other issues that aren't important I have no pedals on this bike but the question I have is has anyone put a sprocket on the front freewheel and used it as a rear wheel? would this work ?

No pedals...?

How do you plan to start bike engine?

Front wheel for rear drive wheel... nope... bad idea.

And I personally have an older Cranbrook motorized bck in 2010, great bike, no issues, I did take rear coaster brake wheel hub apart, cleaned it well ad repacked it good with high quality Lucas tacky red grease.

Great little bike, very comfy ride with nice cushy seat
