I recently bought my first moped, a 1977 Puch Newport. Its rear shocks are in dire need of replacement. I'd like to keep it looking basically stock, so I'm wondering what would be a good choice. Its current, original stocks look like those in the picture below. Are used original shocks worth getting? I've seen some for sale in the $35–$45 range. Or would it be best to get aftermarket shocks? I'd be open to buying new ones and repainting them to match the originals if I have to.
