I want to e-convert a Sachs MadAss (a small, light scooter-like motorcycle) to have good pickup, and a top speed of say 65 MPH while operating well at 35 MPH. Roughly what size electric motor will I need (in terms of power output and voltage), and what are the battery tradeoffs I should worry about?
Has anybody attempted something like this on a medium sized scooter? How much time and effort is involved? (Just want to know if I'm talking hundreds or thousands of hours... I'm not new to mechanical or electrical work, but I am new to electric conversion.)
