Velo-Trike-Car experiment

The other day I picked up an electric motor and battery from an old, non-working Razor skateboard/scooter. It probably won't work for my trike experiment, but we'll see. I can probably salvage the throttle if nothing else. The motor says it can work for up to 100 pounds max.
So as soon as I learn how to weld, I get started on making my own recumbent trike, electric assist for commuting longer distances and hauling loads. Wheel see how it goes.
