It's probably not what you're after, but I'll sell you this one - if you're interested make me an offer:

Must have been a big plane! I'd hope to get back at least what I paid for it...if not I might as well keep it and use the motor for an electric bike. The spindle works well, it's just now I have the 2.2kW water cooled spindle I just don't really need it. It could still be useful for lower rpm since the water cooled spindle obviously lacks torque in the range that this motor operates.
