The AC-50 sounds like a good kit. I don't personally know anyone who has used it yet, but would love to hear experiences from anyone who has.

In recent years, there have started to be AC motors available for golf carts and forklifts. A friend of mine is just waiting for AC electric forklifts to hit junkyards, but I think that's going to be a long time coming!

The AC-50 is based on an AC golf cart motor, but modified for street EV use.
