    They way i am gearing my motorized bike to run is through the crankset of my bike. Does anyone know if it is possible to take the crankset off a bike and install it on the left-hand-side of the bike?(cranksets are always on the right-hand-side)

    Not sure exactly what you're asking....can you explain the question a bit more?

    If you can find a pre-WWI Prussian or Ukrainian built bike, you can likely find a left side chainring and left hand drive on the rear wheel, but why bother?

    Simply use a chainring derailler type forward double sprocket cluster, and run the power to your subsidiary chainring inside the main.

    You can switch the cranks. Not sure about the wheels tho. Perhaps a flip flop hub from a track. Bike ?
