A little while ago an ACL with a HafleXX motor showed up on eBay and the seller was kind enough to allow use of his photo on the eclair16 site.  Check it out at http://eclair16.com/...ersions/motors/

 

 I've had the page up on the site with that motor listed, but I have never been able to find a single photo of one.  So, I assume they must be pretty rare.  I thought it was pretty cool - it look surprisingly close to the same form factor as the original heavy duty motors.

 

Anyway, the auction appears to have come and gone with no bidders.  At least for a while it can be found here: http://cgi.ebay.com/...E:X:RTQ:US:1123

I had a chance to examine one of those motors many years ago. It was nowhere near as quiet as the original Eclair multispeed motor.

Ah interesting.  I was mainly surprised and curious because I had that motor listed on the ACL page (inherited from the old Geocities page) for years but never could even locate a photo of it.
