Hi Danny

The Derbi Senda always looked like a good candidate to me. Readily available second-hand in 50cc and 125cc versions, fairly light, and they also do motard variants which should have considerably lower rolling resistance than the trails version. I think Todd Kollin at Electric Motorsport did a few conversions based on this bike as well.
