What kind of of the hardware shelf motor should I use for an electric bike that only needs about 25 mpr? Answered

I'm trying to convert my street bike to electric and I'm looking for a cheap motor that I could find at almost any local hardware store.
the motor needs to be able to move me and the batteries on my 27 inch bike at least at 25 mpr on flat road and sidewalk. and at least at 15 mpr up hill.... the motor needs to also be quiet as to not scare and walkers.
