Hello guys and gals :)

& so to fill up my already somewhat full schedule, I picked up another project.
The rebuild of my recently acquired (June 2010)1979 Puch Maxi II moped. :eek: It's older than me!

A little history on PUCH:

The company was founded in 1889 by the industrialist Johann Puch and produced automobiles, bicycles, mopeds, and motorcycles. The Maxi is one of Puch's most well known machines along with the Magnum and Newport models. The Puch Maxi is a moped fitted with a single cylinder, 49cc, two stroke engine . The engine (mine is a ZA50) produced around 2hp and could propel the rider at speeds of 28 mph stock (I'm well over 30 mph :) top speed with a few added modification as I will state later) It was started using the pedals which could be engaged and disengaged from the engine via a starting lever so it could be ridden as a normal bicycle.

The moped before:

spec (for now hehehehe):
ZA50 engine 2 speed automatic
14mm intake manifold
Biturbo exhaust system
NGK spark plug
36 tooth rear sprocket
17 inch polished rims

First, I rode it around for a good while as is, then really really good fun times were had and a friend of mine who borrowed the moped after a few swigs ended up barrel rolling off the bike. He was ok but as for the bike, it resulted with a bent fork and minor scrapes on the crank case. It was then after that this moped needs a face lift :)
