There are too many variables to put into account you need to put down more specifications torque is very important.

I'm going to probably get a 36v 1000w motor!
I just had a look at electric scooter parts and at 36V 1000W's seems to be as big as they get it should work great judging by that. Electric bikes use 200-500w's but they can't accelerate the bike only keep it going after you've peddled first 1000w's should be able to accelerate it.

Do you think a 36v 750w would pull a bike with out having to peddled?
If you gear it correctly yes, I am sure you will need to give it a bit of a kick of with your feet though.

Yeh they have bike kits that are 36v and 48v but their in hub motors!
your best bet would be to check out the answers to this question wich was asked a few weeks ago. it should also answer your questionl

With suitable gearing yes - Your going to have the potential for 20 - 30 MPH - BUT you will need good streamlining.

~750 Watts equal 1 horsepower. You have about a 1/3 HP motor. You're not going to go very fast.
Depends on the size of the wheels, and how you gear the motor to them.
