Hi, I’m trying to convert the two front wheels of my Berg Black Edition pedal go kart into electric powered wheels. The back two wheels are single geared, pedal powered, and I would like to leave them as is so I can still use it as a bike when I want to. The whole kart, including myself, currently weights between 300-350 lbs. I would like it to be able to go between 30-40mph. I would also like to add disk brakes and possibly some sort of suspension to the front wheels. Is a build like this possible? If so, what other stuff will it require other than the stuff on the list below (minus the suspension stuff)?
-2 hub motors (BLDC? / how much power does each motor need to get me to my target speed?)
-controller (Do I need 1 controller for each wheel?)
-disk brake set up
-lithium Ion Battery (How many volts do I need to run this setup plus some lights?)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
