<HTML>Dear Puch experts,
I recently aquired a '79 Puch Maxi from my grandfather that had been sitting in his basement for the last 16 years. The frame is in excellent shape but I've had to do some maintenance (i.e. rebuild the carb and set the timing), but now when I go to start it up the motor will only run with the choke fully pushed in. Even when it is warmed up the motor will not run without the choke pushed in. Any suggestions? I would also like some tips on how to get this thing off the line (more power) and top speed. What aftermarket parts are there? Any sprockets, carbs, bore kits or exhausts available? I've never had a moped...only crotch rockets (i.e. honda CBR F3's and suzuki GSX-R's) so this moped is going to be too slow in any form for me, but I do want more power. Has anyone straped on a Nitrous Oxide "Sneaky Pete" system before? Just some thoughts here. Am I crazy for doing this or even thinking about it...or has this been going on in the moped community for years? Anyone, please e-mail me and point me
out in the right direction. Thanks.
