building a gas powered bicycle, the kind you peddle and pop the clutch and go, i have a 24v DC motor that I want to implement into the drive chain, I will be using two 12v 17amp batteries, and a thumb type throttle, to use as a forward assist so peddling will not be necessary ! once the motor is running on it's own, I need that forward motion to then drive the DC motor to keep my batteries charged, first of all, even though this sounds real good on paper, is this even possible, and or feasible ? thanks in advance ! new to this forum, here exclusively for this purpose.
