How fast do you the bike to go because if you only want it to go 25mph then you could get a 36 volt 1000 watt motor, a razor mx500 controller and a 5 wire throttle. If you want it to go 40 then you would have get some lipo batteries or get a c80100 brushless outrunner motor and use that. If you go that way then you would have to get a rc airplane esc that can handle 12s(44.4 volts), a servo tester, a 3 wire throttle, and some lipo batteries because lead acid batteries will not be able to put out the current the lipos can.

Want to answer this one but a decent reply will require up to 3 pages. There are so many if's with electrics.

Short answer assuming a tight budget, 175lbs and ~30mph:
Brushed motor 2-4hp
Controller 100-200amps
Lead acid batteries. (hawker/genesis or b&b) hawker batteries can be recharged in minutes.
Try to stay between 24 and 36 volts. Voltage is expensive in coin, space, and weight.
