Default Re: Can I use an old lawnmower engine?

I've been thinking a lot about this project and the fact that a combustion engine is illegal to use on the roads or probably the worlds most expensive home made scooter to insure, I believe you guys are right and I'm going to go electric.

I've been looking at some motors, I think something like this will do:
I need to make sure that I can get the right battery and it will go more than 10 miles on full power. I'd also like to work out its maximum speed and gear ratios, does anyone know how to do that?
