Replacing broken plug... Any suggestions?

I've got an old A2B Velocity and managed to break some pins in the plug that goes to the hub motor. I could just match wires and solder, or even use terminal connectors, but I'd prefer something more elegant like the original design.
Any suggestions as to the name of the connector plug or methods would be greatly appreciated.

Chad,

I hope you find the real A2B parts needed!

Maybe plan B, this off the top of my head, so I'm not sure if it will help. I haven't had that happen with my ebikes .....yet! I have needed the same sort of thing for marine application and found Duraline. They make all sorts of both male and female, rubber armored plugs. Once found, I was able to find a distributor, one state away that were willing price and sell per unit.

There are any number of manufacturers of waterproof DC connectors out there.

Good Luck!

@Chadwick Merriweather , I suggest that you contact A2B, the orignal manufacturer at their San Francisco offices. Both Kyle Langdon and Parker or Wardell are exceptionally good with the electronics and should have either parts or alternative suggestions to do the repair. Those connectors are specific for each of the A2B models. Also, try this phone #415-695-3115, during typical Mon-Friday business hours.
