    Hello everyone,
    I've made my gasoline kulana moon dog and it's fun and all but now I want to add an electric motor. I want to get a hub motor on the front hub so I can still use the back tire for the gas engine. Does anyone know of a kit which is hopefully under 400 dollars which will fit in this situation? I would really appreciate any suggestions you guys might have. I also want to try to make it one throttle (I could probably do for a thumb throttle) for gasoline and electric power. I'm really excited to see your guy's advice!

    Thank you in advanced
    Mike

    Yes, that should be do-able. I can't think of a particular brand right now, but there's a few front hub motors in the 400 dollar range. I'm sure you'll find them easily by searching the vendors.

    I doubt if you can make one throttle control both drives, though.
