E50 Dart motor

Randy Waterman /

Evening guys (and gals). I have a few questions I can’t seem to get answered. I bought a Puch Dart (mini maxi) a while back, in the middle of building it but I ha e some questions about the dart motor. First off, I can’t seem to find any info regarding the differences internally between it and a standard e50. Post on here said the cases vary, but I’ve also read brief comments about it having a different starting mechanism. Also, I bought a second dart motor, and it’s (hopefully) going to be a super stock setup. I’ve been looking for piston rings, since I now have 2 stock top ends and 2 pipes. Anyone know where to get them? Or what other rings would for? Also on another note, I bought an additional front fairing, and found that it’s a dark red, like all other Darts I’ve seen on here are. My complete one (build project) has 250 original miles and all the plastics and owners manual. But it’s a richer more orange red than the dark red that all the others I’ve seen are. Anyone know if this was a color option? Not too much info on colors, and all the plastics match color wise

Also as a side note, mine actually says mini maxi on the side covers, not sure if that helps in determination

Re: E50 Dart motor

For many of your engine questions you can look up the Puch AD motors

The wiki has some info on that different type of starter clutch

Re: E50 Dart motor

i have one apiece. in usa, darts came red. mini's came red/orange. a definite color difference......my understanding, mini's were targeted euro market. darts usa market....mini's still managed to find their way here. mini's also came in a variety of color. darts red only.....i would think, if you saw anything other than red/orange mini here, it would be super rare.

reverse cut gears, 3 shoe clutch are a few diffs....rings are easy to come by. treats, 2fast, dos cycles, denny's, myron's, i use them all for aftermarket, nos parts.....
