Electric power for Wincheetah

I have a Windcheetah recumbent trike which I would like to fit with an electric assist motor

I also have a trice QNT which I have fitted with a bionx motor.

The Wchch cannot be fitted with the usual type of hub motor because of the split rear drive System with the wheel on a stub axle.

Some years ago I heard of a friction drive system which would in theory possibly fit on
The Wchch. An alternative of dual front power hubs would probably be difficult to fit with a braking system and would be very heavy.

Has anyone any ideas or suggestions - apart from just getting fitter!

How about a mid-chain drive motor, instead of a hub motor?

Thanks, I will look into this a bit more, although the clearances available on the Wchch are very tight.
