[SOLD] Edge1500 direct-drive hub motor - $100

Shipping is $15 or (actual shipping charges + (optional) insurance charges + delivery confirmation fee, if any), whichever is greater. I will try to find cheapest shipping option or will ship according to your carrier of preference.

Most items are new or lightly-used. A few items that have been used moderately or heavily are noted. If you think my item pricing is off or you're buying multiple items, please make me an offer.

I will test everything electronic to make sure it works before I send it out, so I am selling everything "as is". But, if you buy an item that is dead on arrival, damaged in shipment, or you believe you got a raw deal, please contact me as soon as possible so we can work out a solution. I am not making a profit on this and am more interested in seeing this surplus hardware find a home with other enthusiasts where it will get used instead of collecting dust in my workshop.

Don't forget to take a look at my bike items for sale.

All prices are in US Dollars. Please follow up or reply via private message if interested.

$100 - The Edge1500 motor is sold new by LA E-Bikes. Buy used and save. See photos of the actual motor for sale here and here.

The Edge1500 has 23 poles, 35mm stator w/0.35mm laminations and includes approximately 4.5 mL of Statorade, Hall sensors, a 10K NTC thermistor, and a quick-release connector in the cable to ease wheel installation and removal. Kv=11.5. Inner locknut dimension is 135mm, although I will include a few spacers to allow for a larger freewheel or wider dropouts.

The connectors are plug-n-play compatible with the standard adopted by Grin Technology for its motors and controllers: Anderson PP45 for the phases, and JST-SM 5-pin for the Hall, and a JST-SM 2-pin for the temperature sensor.

The motor was laced in a 1x pattern and shows signs of use but is in good condition, having been ridden for about 5600km. I am selling this fast-wind motor because I replaced it with a similar motor that uses a slower wind (kv=8).

Please note that the wheel truing stand is for display purposes and is NOT included.

I already have an Edge 1500W, or...I would be all over this. I have tested and sold dozens of ebike parts, but this motor is one of the few I have kept.

The fact that it has a temp sensor installed and already has ferro fluid inside is a huge bonus, because...you don't need to disassemble the motor to add that feature. The cost of a temp sensor plus FF is very affordable, but...the disassembly and re-assembly of the hubmotor is a huge pain.

This combo is easily able to handle frequent 3000W blasts without overheating. I am personally running 52V X 50A = 2600W, and I can't feel it getting warm from the outside with my hand.
