looks like you have a old shool electric motor, and a wiring mess to boot. l tried messing with the wires off an electric hub motor and it blew the controller. so, becareful when testing. red and black are power and the other six wires go to the controller. l wished you had a better cam, the pics are alittle hard to see. maybe santa will be nice to ya this year, lol. anyway let us know how it goes.........

Haggard, I think if I was you, I wouldn't touch anything until you get a schematic and find out if it is a Hall effect throttle or the 5K ohm pot for the right hook ups. As well as the correct Voltage and Watts.

Ran across smart-e on an old website by accident the other day, but it didn't go anywhere. Are they still around?

You are going to have to get a controller before you can use this hub.

I would suggest talking to the folks at Bionix for one.

the controller is built into the hub already. it is a 250W pedelec system. the motor senses the torque on the chain wheel and automatically engages the motor.

the company is now called Bionx.

what you really need is to get your friend to also give you the Bicycle computer type thingie that belongs to this unit as it is part of the controller. it is used to turn the unit on/off, level of assistance and regen level.

these kits were built in the province of Quebec in Canada. the factory generally has a lot of spares and good customer support. you might find them a little pricey though.

ps this is really an assist motor. no throttle - you don't pedal and it dosen't run.
