Some Australian made candidates to consider would be:
http://www.ultramotive.com.au for the motor. I think they are developing a smaller sized Carbon motor.
http://www.tritium.com.au for the controller. The wavesculptor200 is very compact for what it can do.
The Australian made angle may also be a plus as far as sponsorship is concerned.

But I have had nothing but great customer support when working with the Enertrac organization. Granted I did NOT build a motorcycle for speed purposes.
Either way, best wishes to you in your build.

Apologizes for the delay in replying but I have been out of the office for the last two weeks.
The Engineering Dept has made the following comments but based on your original voltage of 420 Vdc:-
The AF-130 machines itself would give about 140Nm continuous torque, 350Nm peak torque, 60kW continuous power, 120kW peak power, which is somewhat below the values specified. Considering the dc voltage of 420Vdc under load, we would need to choose either a AF-130-3 + PM150DZ inverter, which would limit the performance drastically to 140Nm cont. torque, 220Nm peak torque (30s), 60kW cont. power, 90kW peak power (30s) or an AF-130-4 + PM150DZ inverter, which would limit the speed to 6000rpm but give higher peak torque (280Nm) and peak power (120kW). The PM150DZ inverter seems to fit into the space envelope specified (PM150: L:436 mm, W:200 mm, H:87 mm)
The problem for us is that the Rinehart DX inverter’s max dc voltage is 360 Vdc and the DZ inverter is from 500 Vdc. Your original 420 Vdc is bang in the middle of the dead zone!!!
I will have them confirm that the Rinehart PM150DZ is still okay with 500 Vdc max.
