Just to be sure we are all on the same page... What is you experience level? Written any code before? Any mechanical experience?

You did not provide enough information.

What batteries will you use? What voltage? What size are your wheels? this will help determine the torque required. What gear box are you using? Even if we could find the perfect motor for you the next problem will be buying it. Shipping cost for big motors would be very high.

You are much better off looking around to see what is available locally. One possibility is windsreen wiper motors or electric window motors from a car. They don't have to be brand new. Because of your weight requirements a small 12V motorcycle battery might be the way to go.
