I want 50 mph, and a 50 mile per hour range
Hope you dont mind me using your pics & offering some suggestions?
I would consider this scoot closer to an eBicycle than a eScooter.
Low power, short range, lowish weight.
50 for 50. is a mighty task to ask of that frame.
Consider beefing it up or having someone else weld a bar in the center.
You lose the step through ease, but will look more like a motorcycle.
I think you will find an unacceptable amount of flex riding that thing @ 50mph as is.
Front end flex, swingarm flex,braking flex, frame flex.
Should ride like an ole' Cadillac though.
My experience with a higher powered, better equipped, heavier scooter
was lots of flex @ speed.
I put a couple hundred kms. on the Baja 500E.
I ripped off all the bodywork & ratted it out. Got alot of attn. @ 50+kph though.
As for your dropout fitment consider what I am doing with ScootBike
looks like you have enough meat on yours to try the Dogman Clamp.
As for motor I think Golden motors
is best bang for the buck, especially as you already have a controller.
Only $250+ shipping for 3000w continuous, ? w peak.
Good luck. Keep us posted.
