Newbie from Uk

Postby Steadyaway » Sat Apr 05, 2014 3:21 pm

Hi all

I'm new to the forum, and a new moped lover. I've got a few bikes, but also caught the moped bug last year with a 1980 Puch Maxi N. Here's the before and after photos.

Bought as a none runner off fleabay..

Image

After much work, including complete engine rebuild, 60cc kit, refurb end carb, free breathing air filter, sports exhaust, s/s replacement for most fasteners, powder coated frame, etc, etc...

Image

Image

Did a 160 mile charity ride on it in September last year, which was too much for it, as I blew the engine. So another rebuild, with race crank, new seals and bearings...

Image

That's as far as I've got. I couldn't get the woodruff to engage with the flywheel, so gave up and went indoors for a beer :-)

Looking good so far, nothing nicer than a old school ridgid. Get a comfy seat though. Keep the pics coming. Where in Britain are you, active group over in Ipswich. (EACC)

Hi all

Like a top plonker, I figured out the woodruff key issue on the flywheel was because the clutch side is bigger than the flywheel side (after a couple of hours of fiddling!)...

Image

So once the right one was sat in place, all was good...

Image

Image

So that meant I was ready to refit the engine. Here's the bike ready for it ;)

Image

And here he is with it fitted...

Image

Image

Unfortunately I'd ran out of engine oil, so couldn't see if he starts ok. But happy with a couple of hours progress :)
