I unearthed a pair of inline skate boots I bought for a previous project but never completed. At the bottom were a couple of holes that hold the wheel frames in place, but I removed them earlier, so I had a couple of 1/4" mounting holes. I plan to install a piece of plastic along the bottom, the same width as my wheels. When I measured the big wheels, they were 36 mm wide, but standard skate wheels are usually 24 mm. For this custom build, I am happy to improvise.
I started with the side view since I didn't know the width of my motorized wheel, but 100 mm to 125 mm (4-5 inches) seems typical. The interface at the top should be long enough to reach the mounting holes, which were 170 mm apart, wide enough to accommodate the wheels, and deep enough to support the horizontal bolts.
