    the only way I could see it working, is having a sub shaft with a set of sprockets that could slide back and forth, an old cassette would work, but it would have to be locked and able to slide.. then you would have to be able to use an old derailur and somthing to lift up on the chain when you wanted to shift... would lift on 1 thing, then push the cassette in line with the sprocket you want.. kinda complex, but it's the only way I see it working

    Maybe if you do something different with the mag cover, you could mount the engine back words? It would be pretty clever and the drive cable would then be on the shifter side

    that would put too much stress on the engine sprocket.... you need to keep the chain in line with the sprockets on the engine side.. so you need to move the sprockets and not the chain

    The most you could get away with with a rear derailer setup would be two gears, otherwise it would be just like Mat said, just to much stress.

    Also just to get away with two gears you have to step down the chain size from the standard, because that is too much chain to switch gears with.
