A little late posting the info, plus been busy... Why does that happen when I'm trying to do fun stuff?
So the motor came in... Pretty fast shipping from BMSBATTERY! The motor connector is different than I thought it would be. Not a huge deal... The wheel was not prebuilt, which I was not expecting, so again, no big deal. The motor cable comes out of the freewheel side, which I figured was not ideal. The motor has a quick disconnect as illustrated in the photos; however, the plug is too wide to accept my freewheel removal tool. Nor can I remove or add spacers or washers with this plug. Boo.
This essentially leaves me no choice but to splice a new connector (like the one on the e-bikekit) onto this cable. Kind of a pain. Oh well, I'm determined not to buy a BionX, so I will continue trucking forward. Not that there's anything wrong with BionX, so no offense to the BionX folks!
That being said, I'm in immediate need of comfy transportation, so I'm considering buying a BikeE and pairing that with a e-bikekit rear geared 20" (and I'll be using a 7 speed freewheel on that one). I may even need to move up to 48V for that. The Bafang/Trike combo will be my weekend project.

Yeah. I'm feeling my power requirements inching upward...
