Everything looks good but I'd advise against the 5065 SK3 motors as they have 6mm motor shaft. In the past I was able to snap a motor shaft. Since your using our DIY motor mounts as well the 63mm motor mount is much easier to use since you have a better clearance for the motor pulley and your hex key tool for easy adjustment. Using 50mm, you'll have to take off the pulley to secure the "motor" which is inconvenient IMO. Also... forgot the 50mm SK3 don't fit our mounts as they use an even shorter bolt spacing for their motors.
