There are plenty of resources to figure out for myself what type/size motor I should get, as I've read through this and a couple other threads on the subject and watched the video on this thread. I just want testimony from one of the folks who have done it and can tell me what kind of motor might get done what I want to get done, which, albeit lofty, is: highway legal (top speed ~55), and 50-60mile range. I'm thinking if I pick up a motor that can do these things, the bigger issue would be finding capable batteries. I'm willing to put quite a bit of money into batteries that can give me the aforementioned speed and range.

Could this be done?
What are the specs on that Raymond forklift motor? serial/model number?
