As the title says, I just bought moped #3, #1 is actually a noped QT50 still in project stage, #2 is an '86 Puch Maxi with some mods and a rider, and now I bought a 1979 Honda PA50I
This is nothing like my Puch.
The previous owner, bought it, put new tires and tubes on it, cleaned it up, made it complete, rode it a little and parked it with the rest of his motorcycle collection. I have cleaned out the tank, next I guess I have to figure out how to get to the carb and clean it, check the plug and start it (which I am really not that clear on how to do).
The bike is complete down to the tool kit and in very good condition. I only bought it to "putt" around on and loan to friends so I have someone to ride with when on my Puch. I'd like to eventually mod it some but not heavily. I've looked over the Wiki and information seems sparse, though I know people have modded the heck out of these.
I've know the previous owner long enough to know that he takes care of his bikes, on all his 2 cycle bikes he runs the fuel out of the carb before putting them away and if they will sit for a while he removes the plug and puts a little oil in the hole and puts the plug back.
I guess I'm just looking for simple PA50 pointers and what to do next to get a few MPH out of it after I get it running. Thanks.
