Vacuum pump voltage?

Today I was dumpster diving and i found an old vacuum so i decided to take the pump out but i made the mistake of not checking what voltage the vacuum runs on, because it also had a spinning component at the mouth of the vacuum. I think the pump works fine because i noticed that tube connecting the mouth of the vacuum and the pump was broke. Is there anyway to find out what voltage it runs on? would standard 120 be ok?
The markings on it say 81 b-9 ECP 6500-240 HPU+ 60hz HD10 120 vac 07:07
does that mean it will work off a standard 120 outlet?

update: What I am going to do with this motor has been decided. I will be attaching it to the back wheel of my bike with a car battery, i will install some type of switch on the handlebar or add something like a dimmer switch, this would allow me to have the motor on if i want, and i can adjust the speed. Please help fine tune this idea.

theres a problem with that: the motors ac, the battery's dc. you need an inverter to run that motor if its inductive

Ok, well that can be done because i was considering doing this to it, and modding it so that i could have my front wheelup front and i would size down the cart.. Another issues that i saw is that if the motor goes fast the pedals would too, is there anyway to run the motor and not have the pedals turning?
disconnect the chain
. Most bicycles I've ever seen will freewheel.

i would need an dc - ac inverter, i assume voltage specific?
yes but no. you need at 120VAC to 12VAC adapter you can run in reverse, or a real adapter

So, i took a powerchord, and split the ends and touched them to the place where the wires were on the motor, there was a giant spark and the motor did start to move very fast until i pulled back as soon as it sparked, and i smelled burning. is this something i sould be worried about?
