Dual drive hub

Hello guys...

I really need some help here...!

I am building a Penny Farthing/Kangaroo/Safety hybrid with a modern twist to it, and i need some help with finding a proper hub.

1. Twin / dual drive hub with freewheel.

2. Twin / dual drive internally geared freewheel hub.

Do you know of any hubs of manufacturers ?

The bike is going to have dual chaindrive if I find the right hub :-)

I think most dual-drive hubs are freehubs, I don't know if I've seen a freewheel version. I have a Sachs dual drive 3x8 hub on my Bike Friday and I've been happy with it.

Sound like you may need to source something like a Patterson Drive. Years ago I saw where someone had built a Sturmey Archer 3 speed into a bottom bracket, don't recall the details.
