Yeah, I just bought a Puch Maxi MKII for 455 bucks. It ran for an hour and then the carburator got messed up. It has a hole in the float (already ordered a new one). I think I'm gonna switch some parts around between it and my Newport (such as the two speed transmission, wheels, and rear shocks) and then put the old parts back on the maxi, making my Newport awesome and the maxi just relatively plain. I can't decide if i want to sell it, though. If I do, I already know of about 4 people who want to buy it :). You know what, Jess, we should hang out and go cruising sometime.
Oh I found the ped on E-bay. I had to drive to clara city Minnesota to get it. About a 2 1/2 hour drive, but he has a whole shed full of motorcycles and a few mopeds. Watch for a sweet motobecane with leg fairings on ebay sometime in the future. The guy's username on ebay is liliputacres.
