Upgrading Ecosmart Metro to 1000w Motor

Hello, I'm planning on ordering the Unite 48 Volt 1000 Watt Electric Scooter Motor MOT-481000 from you guys and installing it onto my ecosmart metro. Another forum user here did this but didn't explain much in how he mounted it to the frame. He stated though, that he didn't modify frame in order to do so. I'm guessing I'll need to drill a hole at least.

I'm not very mechanically inclined, and wondering if you guys thought this would be a doable project for a novice. I'd be happy to share pics to document the process for others. Thanks. 


Included is a picture of the 1000w motor user robert dunkle installed onto his ecosmart. 


We do not know any details about the installation other than what is in the forum topic. From looking at the photo we can tell that he had to drill a couple of holes to mount the new motor and that he may have had to shim the wheel sprocket out a little with washers to get it in alignment with the motor sprocket.
