Basics of Bike conversion

I am searching for different motorcycle conversion tutorials. Our requirement is to obtain a speed of 150 km/hour. Two the point which I got so far:
  1. Size and weight of battery should be appropriate
  2. Type of Motor influences the speed
What are some extra points I should know about it before proceeding?

[Sorry, I made a typo mistake used the bike instead please forgive and missed k instead I wrote mph instead of kmph. Now replaced both. Thanks and sorry]

Bike? As in bicycle or motorcycle?

150mph...is that the correct unit?

150 mph bike... I'd suggest V-Max; that torque is a BLAST!

150 mph bicycle... go with rocket power.

First determine CdA drag. Second find where you can ride safely ride a motorcycle at 150 mph.

Hey, OP

Pretty obviously you had something else on your mind when you specified "150 mph motor." You can do 150 mph on a bicycle, but you have to be drafting the Pepsi Challenger dragster to do it. You can do 150 mph on a motorcycle, but you probably won't be able to fit the kind of motor it requires onto a bicycle frame.

So please update this thread with what you actually meant when you said "150 mph."

Or a valveless pulse jet, if in addition to 150 mph you'd enjoy 150 dB.
