Default 12 V motor recomendations

I need info, I fly glow so I have no elec motor experience. I need a motor to run on 12 to 14 volts from a motorcycle battery, swing a 5 inch prop and be capable of running 1 or 2 minutes at a time. A closed or sealed motor would be best. No esc just on/off switched relay, hi thrust is not necessary just need to move air but a lot more than a computer fan is capable of. Any ideas?

Obviously, to avoid use of an ESC, you'd want a brushed motor... if weight is not an issue then a big one (say, an 12v Speed 600 : would be happy enough to spin a little prop like that for a minute or two without any heat issues.
