Default Cabinet motor for 1904 Singer 27-4 treadle machine

How hard would it be to put a motor on a 1904 Singer 27-4 treadle machine? I have rheumatoid arthritis and haven't been able to enjoy my treadle machine recently (thanks to my hips) so have been entertaining the idea of motorizing it.

There isn't a motor boss on my machine but I see there was, at one time, a cabinet motor that used the belt to run things. My research into this has given me minimal results so thought I'd try here.

Are these motors even available anymore? If so, how hare are they to install, use or maintain?
