Initial answers to questions.

It floats on ball bearings. Provide a rider (I'm 66), and a videographer on the east coast, and we'll talk.

It's an optical illusion, probably due to reflections and the wide angle lens. There is only one freewheel. There is not room for two.
I was thinking that maybe so one could have a chain to the rear wheel?
Good eye. +1
Simply turn the motor gearbox system around (It's symetrical, only four screws), and drive the left side of the rear wheel. The freewheel has an insert that fits on the gearbox keyed shaft. So turn around the motor/gearbox, flip the freewheel on the shaft, and swap two wires on the motor phases, and you are in business. Probably would need a different gearbox ratio, lots of ratios available. The present gearbox full throttle output rpm is 300.
Lookin good Ron.
I never heard back when I asked about making more 3205s.
I love the clean design.
More motors are coming! Sent you a pm.
Amazing! Do you wish to share the weight of a complete unit?
The system including the cranks and bottom bracket weighs approximately 11.5 lbs. Thats about 8 pounds added weight above a standard crank set, and bottom bracket.
Vision IPS freewheeling cranks are used (EVDeals)
Could you please provide a link? I cant find them on the EVdeals website.
Top work BTW!
I get them in quantity thru EVdeals. They are not on his website. I will call Scott at EVdeals, and will report back on this thread.
