couple weird things on puch maxi

I recently got a 78 project maxi. someone did a half-ass replacement of the petcock with an elbow (marked "CHINA") that has no off/off switch, and they ground off the end so the fuse hose can fit (in photo it is covered with a cap). i can't tell how it is secured to tank, I don't see any JB weld around it or anything. I'm scared to try to remove it because it doesn't leak now and could get damaged. I added an inline fuel shut off.

the other thing is a question, there are brackets on each side of handlebars (center of photo) that have nothing attached to them, not sure what they were for? maybe turn signals or mirrors?

Leave the tank alone , as long as it doesn't leak .

The brackets on the handlebar are most likely for a windshield , But could be used for straight stemmed mirrors .

Re: couple weird things on puch maxi

The piece they added to your tank is called a street 90. It is a plumbing part and has a tapered thread. They most likely damaged the original threads by adding it. If it doesn't leak and you dont mind it then I would leave it. The other brackets on your bars are for mirrors or a windshield (edited)
