Looking for hub with freewheel mount on both sides

I looked around in my usual sellers and didnt find any.

No MFG markings, 26" wheel, 36H, 135 width.

Customer rode it far too long with loose bearings and totally trashed the hub.

Its off a Currie e-bike with the rear frame mounted motor. One side has a 7 speed freewheel and the other side provides the electric drive.

Any 36h, 135mm OLD flip/flop hub ought to work. I suspect the electric drive side uses a single cog, so use the fixed-gear side as the electric drive side. Be sure to install a lockring!

Wouldn't that need to have left hand thread on the electric drive side? Seems that would be a fairly specific hub exclusively made for electric or motorized bikes.

They exist, but I have no idea where to source them. Note that the left side will have left hand threads for a left threaded freewheel. You may find hubs with right hand threads on both sides to mount a band brake, but that won't work for your purposes.
Back when I operated a bike shop, I sold a couple of those Currie drive bikes, so I have seen what you're talking about.

The Currie drive that I'm familiar with requires a freewheel on the wheel hub, so it needs to be left threaded.

They list one here but it's out of stock.
Rear 36 Hole 14 gage Hub Left and right hand threads
48 hole seems to be the only one in stock.

Good job slash! I contacted that vendor and they will be getting more 36h hubs soon, AND they also have the freewheel in stock so I dont have to worry about destroying the old one.

Thanks for all your responses.
