Ok so best case you are planning on perhaps 1500 watts max out of this if you can excite the motor properly and not melt the field windings.

I'm a bit sketchy on regen in A/C synchronous motor theory

If you go 3 phase, you can use a RC toy electric motor controller from slamazon or fleabay real cheap. If you use a brushed universal motor, those are easy to control

If you are doing recyclable parts, see if you can score a discarded battery lawnmower. They are brushed dc and about the correct size

casual notes from the underground:There are some "experts" out there that in reality don't have a clue as to what they are doing.
