The simplest way to have the ratchet would be to find two fixed-gear bikes and put the ratchets one on each side. You will need to modify the hub a bit, but it should work.

I think I can handle that. But I'm not planning on devoting that much effort into it.

Having the pedals spin constantly will get extremely annoying. I tried it once and had to remove the pedals. I would've done the dual ratchet thing I mentioned, but I just didn't have the time.
