Ah well, it's probably headed for $240. Crowded area around here.

For ~$100 I can finish my electric bicycle, but it was nice to think about anyway. 'preciate the inputs and encouragements

Hopefully someone else can put it to good use, maybe another local ecomodder and I can go visit it

Come oooon.... its only an extra 28 dollars so far! hehe... kidding... another one will come along. I'm sure that local wreckers or forklift suppliers would have cheap options as well.

google maps satellite and zoom in on the place where its at
1375 SPAULDING RD, 60120

It looks like a total fork fest, will probably stop in once I have a real budget.

From the eBay listing, it sounded like they may have more laying around.

That's probably for the best anyway. You get to a) open and inspect a prospective motor and b) tell the guy it is crap and he'll never sell it and he only has this one chance to unload it for 50 bucks

That is a monster! You'd have to work out how the RPM will do with your gearing.

you know you want it...
