Thanks, yeah I know what you mean. I have been very anxious to motorize, but I don't want pulleys and belts. But I also can't seem to find a gear reduction with the appropriate speed and power. I keep hoping I'll run across one of the famed "Beefy Bodine" but so far no joy. I'm not even sure they are actually called Beefy Bodine, that's just what I have heard them referred as.
I'll hold off a bit longer and hope you reply with a thumbs up on your setup. It does look good.
