Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

I’m found a swing arm from an old moped that fit perfect between the pedal shaft on my maxi. I’v seen guys do this to run fat knobby tires I just do not know how safe it is?

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

What makes you question the safety , compared to a stock set up ?

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Overpriced Parts /

Angle to front countershaft sprocket will not work/chain Hit rear tire

Biggest you can go is magnum or MLM swing arm and go with 2.75 tires

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Could you please explain mire ken.

I’m going to be using a Lifan engine.

I’m worried about safety pd because I really do not think puch intend for this. I’m worried about handling issues also.

I wanna build this: http://garage.1977mopeds.com/build/Puch+supermoto+off+road

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Looks to me like the supermoto you referenced did what you asked about .

Maybe not the same swing arm , but ...

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Go for it. You'll figure it out. If you have to make chain tensor like the bike you posted then oh well. It's as safe as you build it.

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Hey Rocco if you want to do a Lifan build, I have a frame and engine for ya. Batavus frame made to accept a Tomos swingarm and wheels, Lifan motor. Abandoned project here in Columbus Ohio. Pm me if interested.

I really don't think Puch intended 50 year old 200# men modding and riding them at over 50 mph either, but who cares what Puch intended...

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

It’s was actually a super easy fix...all I did was cut the slugs off the old moped, dremeled the pedal shaft on the puch and hammered the slugs in. Going to need a few washers a make sure everything is perfect but that’s how I roll.

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

I feel like I picked the perfect swing arm. Its been to easy to install it, something has to gone wrong.

This swing arm is so fat I could fit Kim Kardashian’s fat ass & still have room for a 3.00

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Just make sure the sprocket doesnt hit the tire

Have to be a really big sprocket to interfere with the tire , I'd think . ;)

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

I meant the chain line. Sorry! You might have to make a little spacer to get the sprocket out more to run a super fat tire. I'm kinda brain dead today.

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Yea yea I think ken was actually talking about that. Yea your probably right about needing a spacer.

When this bike is done its going to be more modified then any porn star.

I really wanna thank you y’all for giving me the courage to hack the thing up. I think it worked out well. (edited)

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Also iv been working on a case inducted

e50 with a stock 38mm cylinder.

Stick welded it all by myself. Going to run jbweld like crazy on the outside Edges to seal everything up.

Stick welding aluminum will make you cry

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Yer suppose to wear a helmet , so the spatter doesn't get in yer eyes . LOL

Re: Puch maxi crossover build: swing arm question

Haha no pd... like trying to actually set a good bead was absolutely frustrating. It was just get clog by the outer shell & it burns so quick like a fuse, you have to literally jam the rod into the piece.

Jb weld all day

Dude this swing arm is beefy! I think I’ll be okay but I’ll let you know if I snap the swingarm before the frame.
