I believe you're asking for how to make a motor. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's what you're asking.

Her's an example of a commercial product that accomplished the goal.

As you can see, if you follow the link until you get to the price, an off the shelf, commercial solution is, generally speaking, not something most of us "normal" people can afford to buy, especially in the current economic climate, any more than a 20 thousand dollar solar or wind generation plant...

Basically, what you need to look up is "how to make a pancake motor"

Her's a link the a company that sells motor hubs, if you can afford ~$100 to get started...you'll still need controllers, batteries, etc. but it comes closer to DIY. And some of the pics give you an idea of what you'll need to do if you want to design your own.

thanks.......
FWIW, conceivably, you could use a hub with a disk brake as the starting point for a DIY pancake motor.
