New Dead Motors Arrive!
Woohoo! Icecube57 over on endless-sphere.com was trying to get rid of a dead motor with a broken stator. I thought about it for 5 seconds and bought it from him. He didn't include the mangled and broken stator because he had another buyer for it. I received it last night. Along with that motor, I bought the replacement parts needed from e-bikekit. Of course, it's not that straightforward. The parts I got to fix the motor aren't exactly 100% either so I will have to spend some time in ripping them apart to find out what exactly is wrong.
Along with Icecube57's rim and rotor, are photos of the replacement motor and stator along with a 8Fun motor that Veloman was giving away.
Here are the photos. So many motors, so little time!

New additions to the family portrain!
Notice the slightly larger 8Fun rim
