Has anyone ever mounted the chain ring from a donor bike on the rear wheel and use it for a chain drive?

All of the photos I have seen of chain drives have a large rear sprocket and it seems this could work.

it's the thickness of the chain rings that matters in this case. the chain rings that a bike uses are not as thick as the ones that come with the kits. the chains are also of much different sizes. to answer your question, no it probably would not work.
