so, I managed to get my hands on a 120v, 6.5 amp motor from a dishwasher. it has 4 wires coming out of it, so I'm assuming it's a 3 phase brushless induction motor. How would I go about controlling it? It doesnt use much power, so would it also be possible to use a power inverter to step up from a lower voltage from my batteries?

I have little/no intention of using this motor to power anything, it's only 1/3hp, so it's quite small for much else other than a bicycle.
