First time buying moped puch Cobra

I am currently buying my first moped ever its a Puch Cobra, any advice for a first time mopedr? Do you think a Cobra is a good first buy? I was looking into a MK2 but couldn't fine one. But the Cobra's frame is similar to the MK2 so I am Happy about that!

Thanks (edited)

depends if u want top tank or step thru

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

top tank for sure, thats why i was looking at the MK2s

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

cobra is like a smaller lighter magnum. way better IMO

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

Yeah Cobras are kickass.

If price point isn't an issue go for it.

I assume you are going to pay an arm and a leg for a Cobra

You could get what is basically the same bike in a Maxi or something and pay a lot less money.

You might want to buy a Maxi, dick around with it, learn you love it, fuck it up, THEN buy an expensive Cobra or Magnum or whatev.

On the other hand moped prices are basically stable so unless you fuck it up badly in 2 years it will still be worth the same thing it is now.

But yeah, Cobras are kickass.

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

Do you guys know( for in the future) if it's easy to find parts for a cobra. Does it essentially have the same engine parts as a maxi?

Overpriced Parts /

Yes

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

Do you know where i can download a manual?

Thanks

everything is the same on any puch

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

u dont need a manual, just use the wiki. only thing i have actually needed a manual for was the E50 clutch shim spec, which was .004"-.008". now that that is on the forums no one needs the manuals for anything anymore. sorry ebay manual sellers.

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

is it just me or is having a running cobra as your first moped just set you up for a world of disappointment for mopeds 2,3 and 4

I think the only hard part of having a cobra is managing to convince yourself to keep it all stock.

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

Picture of said moped

Re: First time buying moped puch Cobra

probably the best possible first moped.

e50 = easy engine

toptank = newb hardons

cobra = not another magnum

winwinwin
