We use something similar at work to unreel rolls of fibre/cable, try searching for cable roller or reel roller, they are usually rated for weight. personally I'd be expecting the car to roll off when the clutch is let out on the bike, there again I am probably wrong.....again

They are simply the best (although a bit spendy). I got mine in trade for an Aermacchi/HD Sprint 350 "knucklehead" engine.

the vintage flat tracker people use them, and the last time i was there had several for sale, new and used:

but there weren't any yesterday.

Find a junk treadmill as they have two that look very similar.

I would be very surprised if one of your mates could not fabricate a set for you I made a couple back in the 70s when we were drag racing

Not sure what "little motors" you are referring to. The starter motors in the pics are Ford auto starters and they definitely are not little. And they really put out the torque. The rollers are kind of violent when the 2 starters engage.
