Last week I bought this gem from another member on here. 1977 Maxi Newport. Brought it home in my XV Crosstrek.
Turns out that I got ripped off and its an absolute piece of shit. After taking it home and going over it, its clear that the guy didn't know what the hell he was doing. Claims the ped was taken apart and in boxes when he bought it. Said he didnt have time to finish the project but that all the pieces were there. BUUULLLLLL SHIT.
SOOOOOO many things were assembled incorrectly (or completely missing). Wiring was atrocious. The "clean" gas tank had the nasty black goo in the bottom of it. Not even close to having all the parts.
Oh well. Karma will make it right. At least its in good hands now. Some new parts have already arrived, and some more are on their way. (edited)
