Electric Motors,

Ultimatly I'm going to use a engine / gearbox combination for my Warrior. However I have just been surfing ebay (sober this time 8) ) and I spotted these electric scooter motors, they are really cheap ranging between £15 and £25 each. Motor output is approx 250W or there is an option of a 500w version.

Check out the link below.

Does anybody know the max RPM or Torque output?

My question is; has anyone had any experience of them and if so what did you reckon? to me this sounds like a cheap route to getting my warrior moving under it's own steam (ps you can buy the actual Scooter for about £90, complete with twist grip throttle).....
