How ever you decide to do it I will be following this build now.
i agree a bicycle with this kinda power deserves a custom built frame up to specs made the same amount of material of a steel frame but built with chromoly instead for added strength and rigidness
if you wanna go all out use push though axles for strength double walled heavy duty wheels and hydraulic disk brakes front and rear with emergancy v brakes set up to a dual brake lever with a lock button to act as parking brake

then after all that you can work on a lighting system to make your ride street legal turn signal brake light tail light hi/lo beam headlights and a horn
