electric knee walker

Hi, I would like to go long distance trail walking using an electric powered knee-walker Please can someone help with how I might make this happen.

My weight + backpack.

Max speed 3-5 mph.

All-terrain large wheels.

Low speed, long distance/time.

Solar charging?

Many thanks, Mark

Our beach cart kits with gear motors are designed for speeds in the range of 3 to 5 miles per hour so they would be a good place to start. Here is a link to them:

The drivetrain or more specifically the motor and wheel sprockets and chain will be the most challenging parts to match together with each other. Our gear motors have sprockets for 1/2" pitch chain and our scooter wheels have sprockets for 1/4" and 8mm pitch chain. However, there is a company called Rebel Gears that custom makes wheel sprockets and could make a sprocket for 1/2" pitch chain that would fit our scooter or dirt bike wheels. 

A nice heavy-duty wheel to consider is our item # RMX-REARWHEEL which is available on this page:
