Have I found my forkencycle motor?

Forklift, Stock Picker rare item

Couple of questions on this:

Any estimates on what the kW rating/HP of that motor is if it can lift 3000#? Should I bother asking the seller?
What kind of lift rating should I be looking for for a motorcycle that can achieve a top speed of oh... 50-55 (JUST hwy legal)?
(There are plenty of other stock pickers/forklifts on CL, so I don't mind if someone nabs this, btw.)

I know I've looked up similar info on my own before, and master google typically has most of the answers, but today I'm feeling motivated for information and lazy about getting it :P
