As I am new to the electronics world, I have an opportunity at hand. I'm currently building and electric motorcycle that includes the existing transmission. There is a local that is selling a 2.75 hp, treadmill motor that I believe would be a good fit for my application since treadmill motors are used to being turned on for a consistent amount of time (my assumption). Only issue is, it requires a 130v power system and to carry 130v worth of batteries on a motorcycle may be a bit over kill and weigh down the bike significantly. Would it be possibly to have a lower battery voltage run through an amplifier to achieve the desired voltage of the DC motor? Again, I'm still new to dealing with electronics. My apologizes in advanced, sincerely.
