What type of motors?

I have a difficult task in hands, spend money with robotics stuff. 8^)
Here's the thing, my new project involves creating an autonomous vehicle
based on a kid's ATV platform (like this one:

It is pretty much set in
stone that we will use that as a platform.
My problem is that I also have to specify a set of other components in the
same list, including motors, solenoids and motor controllers. It's kind of
hard to specify a motor without knowing what kind of force it will have to
pull, not to say that I don't even know where I will mount the motor or how
I will transmit force from the motor to the handlebars/throtle
cable/brake/shifting lever, so I appeal to this list. Maybe some of you guys
have more experience automating something like this, so I'm open to
What I'm looking for (if possible) is suggestions for a complete solution
for actuating this ATV. Anyone?
