    Thanks for the detailed response.
    I'm not sure about the sensor approach. I think as a first EV application/attempt, it is a bit more than my current skill set.

    I don't know if I have enough traction on the front wheel to do it, but it is an option I'll consider. I wonder about the feel of driving a front-wheel drive bike?

    I'm thinking that the 2wheel drive would only work if both wheels are connected. If the bike is on ICE and tge chair us on an electric drive, keeping them synced would be a problem. I could see the...

    How complicated is this? I like the idea of a lowish speed motor as an assist. I don't know much about induction engines. Mostly what I read about is PM engines. Will have to research.

    The Ural is a real pig under 2wd, but it's not designed to be engaged all the time, just when needed.

    Can hub motors easily freewheel?

    If so, then I could...

    I have to check on the Ural rig. Both the bike's rear wheel and the sidecar wheel have power. I'm not sure how that affects turning it. Maybe there is slip in the differential?

    I agree with the 17inch wheels. It is supposed to be registerable. In some places you can do the ebike thing. In Canada, I will have to register and licence it as a small motorcycle.

    I'm thinking that wouldn't need any electrics in it, or would you need to add battery capacity?

    Hacks... Aka sidecar with function

    I've seen someone who thought to put a ICE drive into a sidecar. I thought about a second battery pack and/or a small generator as a range extender/charging option. I wonder if any are feasible?

    I now like the idea of the sound maker. If I get the Rumble, I'll rewire the speakers to an mp3 player. Then I'll film myself rolling out of the garage with GnR blasting.

    For some reason I was thinking their first year was 2002. That said, it's near impossible to find anything older than a 2013 on line.
