    cool. thanks fohe pics.

    right away, I get ideas of reverse engineering it, but I guess they are cheap enough that it wouldn't be worth the time.

    how hot does it get? cooling it might be easy with a CPU fan. you could mount the heat sink and fan to the external side of the chassis next to the fets. that way the enclosure could be kept sealed?

    can you read me the markings off one of the FETs? I'd like to look it up and check it's specs, plus the vendor probably has a higher power version, too. Also, I'm curious if one of those ICs is a PIC controler.

    if you already have it back together, don't bother, I'll probably pull mine apart one of these days.

    it is back together...
    speaking of reverse eng
    i might be able to have a couple
    of 200% cnc copies of this motor made
    it's a good "little" motor
    what would a big brother to this motor be like?
    being able to controll the quality of parts
    and workmanship put in?maybe even add cooling?
    anyways it's something i've been looking into

    i thought there was a 1000w version of the motor already used in a currie scooter. that would be less trouble, and it could give you the time to work on the mounting bracket instead.

    if you CNC an adapter, and you can sell it on ebay to us, I'll buy one.
