Howdy folks! Has anyone seen someone slap an electric motor their frame to drive the pedal side of the rear wheel.

I have seen posts where an hub motor wheel was swapped in the front. That's the most straightforward was to get it done, but it isn't so appealing.

The problems are obvious...

-chain line

-probably have to lose the pedals

-would driving the wheel on both sides cause problems?

Advantages..

Stealthy pull away and then BRAP BRAP BRAP. It's a party trick, but it could help some folks with annoying neighbors.

Potential to kit out your E50 for high end, but with some extra torque to get rolling.

Maybe there is a case for capacitors here? Runnjng something fairly light weight that can provide a meaningful shove and recharges would be slick.
