    That might be a very good upgrade for me that I can use right now... if it fits my current set up without too much required modification. I am running a ME1003 and Alltrax AXE7245. If this AXE will work, and the motor's face mounting holes are the same as the ME1003, I may bid on it.
    But I need to know the other dimensions of the motor to see if I can make it fit without too much hassle... because it will only be a temporary upgrade for me.

    It works great with the AXE 7245. It's got the same mounting holes as any of the Motenergy motors, a NEMA C-face if I remember correctly. However, I'll caution you, it doesn't have the same low-end torque as the ME1003. Granted, it's about half the weight, but I considered the 1003 an upgrade from the ETEK.

    I just found the photo I took of the bike that ran this little beastie:



    I'm trying to remember the exact weight - with a tiny lipo pack, I believe it was 210-215 lbs. Top speed was around 90mph. It was a 1971 Yammy R5 frame with all the standard race mods.
