I'm just thinking out loud...

I found a 2x2 electric powered hub system this morning on alibaba.com that intrigued me. Two power hubs controlled by a single controller. That led to the idea of adding a rear mounted Honda GXH50 4 cycle engine to power an alternator. It wouldn't take much more than a fast idle to produce the power needed to run the power hubs.

Has anyone here ever tried such a project? It works well in locomotives using diesel powered generators to power electric traction motors. Any comments would be appreciated.

How about a Honda generator? Or other generator? 1000W would probably be a good size for a bike.

Off the shelf might reduce some development time.
