    Couple of things to think about.

    1. You're only going want to drive one rear wheel. If you try to drive them both without some kind of differential, it won't turn very well.

    2. A BMX freewheel, which is an easily obtainable stock item, will solve your coasting problem. You'll just have to machine something on your drive axle to thread it onto.
