Motor mounts.. where to get them?

I've been looking at these two ETEK motors in my garage and I have a scooter I want to put them on.. but the thing which stopped me so far is a motor mount. Okay it's just a metal plate and you drill some holes, big deal. But I'm thinking there has to be premade motor mounts available somewhere. And I recently learned that there's a standard motor faceplate design (named: "NEMA C" IIRC) ...

One thing about a standard is it should mean there are companies making widgets that match that standard.

However I did some googling and came up with motors that have a NEMA C faceplate, but not motor mounts.

Any ideas?

you can go to your local machinist (i did, if you make friends parts can be reasonable ). It's not the c face that is hard to find (cast iron?) Its the connection to the bike that needs to be aligned so the motor shaft is parallel to the rear axle and clear the chain. Design it to fit the bike , don't fit the bike to the c plate! LaTeR

Yes, that's absolutely the other part of the puzzle. The scooter in question is an old Honda Elite and there's room on the swingarm to mount an ETEK and..yeah.. getting that all aligned will be a bit tricky. I'm expecting the ETEK to be joyful extreme overkill ;)

a bit of a suggestion, That ETEK eats amps! heavy throttle will go over 300-400amps and more if its there, get a controller that current restricts below the 5sec. c rate of your batteries, OR waste battery life LaTeR
