If I remember, they do not ship overseas. I have had everything I have ordered from them sent to a friend in the US. Their customer service seems to be beyond crap now though.
If you are getting a cyclone, email Paco directly and ask him what the shipping actually is. He will give you a reasonable price instead of the insane price the website quotes you.
As for a controller, I went with a lyen and he will send you the wiring info.
As for the progress. I am about to wire up the controller and throttle. I need to get some more andersons though. I also have had to reorder my sprockets as surpluscenter had issues with my last order. I'm not impressed with their customer service, but I'll give them one last chance. I hope to get them soon. I need to get them bored out.
The 650 - 1200 watt motors can be sold seperately if required. They come
with gearbox & 14 tooth motor freewheel and cost £129.95 + £9.95 P&P
(subject to exact location).
You would also require controller to be used with the motor which isn't
included in the quote.

I realize you built this bike a couple of years ago. But I love how your direct chain drive here.
I had a couple of questions on your drive train that I was hoping you could help me with.
1.) What type of hub are you using?
If you are asking about the rear wheel hub, it is a standard no name dirt jump bike hub.
2.) How did you get both freewheels on the hub? Can you provide any more details on this?
( Would this one work? ) http://www.sickbikeparts.com/catalog/pr ... lfntfqs6m7
There is only one freewheel on the rear wheal hub. I had it splined by liveforphysics. I think thud will spline freewheels for you. They need to be a white eno though. The motor drives through the standard bike sprockets. I only use 3 from a cassette.
3.) I would like to re-create your motormount / jack shaft mount. What is the part highlighted here for where the jackshaft goes through is called? Any ideas where I can purchase one?
I would call it a bearing tube. I had it all custom made, so you can not buy on like it. You may be able to find something somewhere, but most people are having them made. If I had to do it again, I would make it for more standard 1/2" id bearings. The ones I use a really small and not very standard. If you look through the whole thread, you will see I changed the mount that holds that part on the bike. I could have used a standard bike stem it the seat tube on my frame where smaller. I had one made custom to fit my seat tube and my motor mount. It works a lot better. There was a lot of flex in the old bracket.
4.) Any other specifics on how to re-create the motor-mount would be greatly appreciated.
Make it to fit your motor and bike. Or order a V2 (I think) drive from recumpence and adapt the motor plate to fit your motor. I based my design on his. Mine is steel and heavy though. His is cnc'd out of aluminium and a lot lighter. He also has feet and frame clamps that are amazing. If it weren't for shipping and the exchange rate to NZ, I would have gone with one of his drives and adapted it to my bike.

I have a components question as well though, first is how long does the #25 chain last for you, and second is regarding the axle, how big is it and what steel? I shredded a 12mm mild steel one of mine within minutes, so was thinking of going a 15mm hardened shaft.
