Remmember i have to have enough width between the two bearings to have a stable wheel for the lateral forces.
.. in other words i could not just remove like 50mm total and have the two bearing side to side together and have a wheel that can take lateral force
Umm...lateral forces...Taper roller bearings?

I was thinking 17 inch moped rim I have a 17 x 1.4 at the moment...36 hole, with offset and angled dimpled spoke drillings. Honda C90 front moped rim
Would give a MTB equivalent of about 22 inch.
I had used 12 gauge on my 5304 build. I reckon these 54xx motors with the 5mm spoke hole drillings will easily accept 10 gauge or thicker spokes. even 8 gaugehttp://www.newsonsportec.com/spokes-spec.html
OK, maybe 8 maybe a bit much, we have the thickness of the flange and the 'spoke bend diameter' to consider also
I also have a rim (19 inch I think ) off of a Honda Africa twin, which will give a MTB size of about 26 inch. but I think I prefer smaller for better acceleration
I have the wheel sitting here, but it is chromed and rusty and does not look nice. i will work perfectly but just looks very bad.
These people http://www.hagon-shocks.co.uk/
can do me a new rim and spokes...but it is expensive £65 for rim and a set of spokes also £65 cut to suit
So that is $210 USD extra for a shiny wheel, or just endure teh rust and spend a lot less on the spokes from another supplier
