As long as you enjoy the DIY road trips , highs and lows together ... It will be fun ... it was for me.

From what you happen to already have you are off to a good start.

As long as you are only intending on using it to assist and make your pedaling easier ... ~350W should be fine ... do you know what voltage the scooter motor was originally used at?
