12v car fan motor for an electric bike Answered

Hi everyone !

I have a project for school that's called "the no project project". I have to do anything I want... so I had the idea of doing an electric bike, or tricycle. So I searched for motors... chainsaw motors... etc !

I have a little budget, and I red it was possible to use car heater fan motor, so I was very interested! But I wanted to have a confirmation from you guys... is a car heater fan motor as powerful as a wheel hub motor? and it is possible to use them as a electric bike motor?

Thanks !

Ditto what Steve said. For 12V propulsion, a treadmill motor or wheelchair motor is probably a better starting point.
