ok here's how you figure out (simply) the transmission set-up for this hybrid idea, i you have a clutch system on a moped engine already, if you use one like the pulley on a motobecane you can switch it so it's not even engaged.

But instead of driving the rear wheel directly, it would go to a jackshaft, which the electric motor is also chained to, then a main sprocket to the rear wheel, if you get a decent electric motor set-up you can use the electric motor to re-charge the batteries while driving the ped using the gas engine, re-caliming some of the loss due to friction and other laws of physics, untill you can get somewhere to re-charge the batteries fully. basically you'd need 2 throttle set-ups one for the gas engine and one for the electric motor like a pentomiter (spellcheck has failed on this one, think dimmer switch) the other drawback is that you'll have to keep the electrics for the electric motor totally seperate and shielded from the regular moped electrics (think huge power spike, blown bulbs are the least of your worries)

the hybrid, other than the fact that by it's nature a moped IS a hybrid, this idea has been kicked around on this forum multitudes of times, use the search function you'll find lots.
