I agree strongly with Tom, get that nasty controller business out of the way because a controller bought "off the market" for shunt motors are usually not as cheap as their series wound counterparts.

If the forklift you got the motor out of is somewhat intact find out if you can remove the controller and pot box so they match up nicely to your motor, so long as they are CHEAP you can always sell them off if they are too small.

A little urging with the they are untested might get you them well into the sub $100 area.

Good Luck
