New to the moped game, looking for some help. Been browsing these forums for a little while now and think you all can definitely help. I currently have someone offering to sell me a 30 yr old Puch Maxi for $300. Needs some work and tuning - currently waiting on a list from him. He says he's willing to do it for $150 more, so I'm guessing it can't be that much work. I'd rather do it myself so I can learn moped mechanics.
My main concern though is finding something that is easy and cheap to repair, and can also be upgraded to ~50mph to keep up with traffic flow. Is this a decent (or even good) find? Would you say its worth the money?
Appreciate any advice!
