it sounds like a whole lot of stuff going on.
a generator hub is only going to be able to charge a battery, of the likes to recharge a cell phone.

I really doubt a generator hub has enough wattage to start to charge a battery for a hub motor.

depending on the amount of use
you'd probably need to establish a bank of hub motor batteries
and work thru that bank through out the day...

A dyno hub as a way to remove lighting load from the main batteies would make some sense. You can get 10-12 watts of LED lighting, and that is a help. I have about 5 Watt load with three LED's driven on my non e-bike commuter.

112 kg plus a grain fed Indianan or two, yeah, I'd need e support! Maybe life support! :D

Hi, I own 5 cyclus maximus cargo trikes that I use for my delivery company. they have the appearance of being really slick and well thought out but in actuality they are painfully difficult to maintain, parts availability is scarce and the company itself is frustrating to deal with. the lynch system is nice until there is an issue and after that it is just another 100 pounds of dead weight.

these tartan chassis are visually identical except for a few details which may be just newer models than what I have. I'm not sure if I have any information that could be of value to you but If you would like to pm me for an email address I'd be happy to answer questions or give some detailed snap shots of the inner workings.
