10" or 12" hubmotors

Post by 1JohnFoster » Sat May 20, 2017 2:45 pm

Does anyone know where I could buy a 10" or 12" hubmotor?
250 to 500W, 15mph with maybe 24V?

Or brand/model of some time of scooter or folding bike with 10 or 12" wheels that I could scavenge parts from?
(wheel/hubmotor, controller, charger, but dead batts)

Looking for low-dollar not top reliability nor performance. It's just for (yet another :roll: ) design project I feel compelled to do.
Similar to Urb-E, but with more integrated lockable storage, pedals for legality and more compact for shuffling into standing room only transit.
