Motor Specs : 180VDC H.P 1.5 ( SEE PIC )

180V is very high, and 1.5HP is a lot of power. Honestly, I am not sure, but my first thought would to be to look at controllers for electric vehicles.However, most electric car controllers tend to operate at lower voltages:
How many terminals are on the motor? At that scale, not all DC motors are wired the same. Also, if you want to see a class on controlling very large motors (like you have) please submit it using the form at the bottom of this page.
It has 3 wires red black and earth
it has 2 large brushes
i can take more pics if need be
here are some pics
What is the motor from? Honestly, I have never worked with / encountered such a high voltage DC motor before. I think the motor controllers from the link above should work if you want to run it at about 70V or less.
i think it came out of a tread mill it was givin to me
