Is it a good idea to base a electric motorcycle off a club car?
I'm planing to build an electric motorcycle and would like to base it off a Club Car drive train, mostly because their motors seem to be common on Ebay and like most golf cars there seem to be a lot of upgrade motors and controllers out there.
I'm pretty sure I understand what is going to be needed to make one of these motors work, that it is going to need a support bearing for the output end and that I'm going to need a splined shaft to fit inside, this should not be an issue as I have a mill and lathe and a brother that is going to school for machine tool set up, but I would like to know if there are any other quirks that I should know about, like:
Are there motors that I should avoid?
If I want to upgrade the motor later on do all motors that fit Club Car bolt on the same? I understand that the controllers might not interchange but want to know if the bolt pattern is the same.
I miss posted an intro in here and will move it to the intros, welcome me there if you want.

Welcome ryland Great idea. I dunno if I would use CC. You want to stay with a series motor anyway so you can over volt later. Why not start an electric motorcycle build thread in the DC extreme section? I think there are several members here capable of helping you choose the right stuff
