That could be done with a planetary gear set in the rear hub without to much trouble.It would work like the old hand crack pencil sharpeners on the inside,same principle(remember those).Instead of a hand crank,the cluster would drive the sun gear.That would give you 27%-33%,up or down,depending on which way you ran it.It would triple(guessing)the weight and diameter of the hub.You would have to make it big enough to fit a sun gear and a set or two of orbiting gears.You wouldn't even need a cable,you could reach in the hub with an allen wrench and turn it 180 degrees to engage/disengage.I'd be surprised if someone didn't do some version of it already.
I've never seen the lever deal on VW reduction boxes but I know the made alpine gear sets for them.
