I guess i just opend the door for a wish list.

However, my motor will use a longer shaft and a few other minor changes. Also, this motor is readily available and I can pick them up 15 minutes from my house! And if someone manages to smoke the motor, the stator/windings retail for $50 and are easy to replace! This motor uses high-end bearings and is, overall, a very high quality motor! I am thrilled to find this option so close to my house. Also, these motors have been tested in very dirty environments. So, I am confident it will run well in this application. It is also a very quiet motor.
I mentioned earlier the clamp is the least of my concerns...I have yet to have one slip.

I dunno how you're able to clamp it effectively - I've seen lots of rear racks that twist around, which is why I brought it up.
Now Thud, break out the anodizing setup and lets see some in black or blue!
Just a picture of an alternative DIY build strategy - I found the pic on my old bike build blog - for those who have a lathe & not a foundry ;^)
