Surrey Stretch Limousine Deluxe (6 pedaled model)9 adults and 2 children?

I have a Surrey Stretch Limousine Deluxe (6 pedaled model)9 adults and 2 children that I would like to add Electric pedal assistance along with adding a 7 speed gearing system with Rolling Brake

The problems I'm finding because I prefer not to work with the International Surrey Company



I don't know how you could do it with this. Any pictures of these bikes with motors on them ?

My inclination would be to decouple the motor driving the wheels from the pedals, by putting a motor in as a generator. People pedal the wheels, and either push power directly into the motor, or the battery, or the motor runs off the battery. Either way, there'll be a weight penalty.

Interesting concept.

Your going to need a lot of power to push 6 adults along the road!. In terms of several hundred watts or even Kilowatts.

Try to find a disused golf kart or at least the motor from one.

Do standard bicycle hub motors not fit?
