Stock gearing question

I might be buying a mintish 1978 Puch Newport next month. It has the e50 motor and is the 1HP version. I'm planning on kitting this bike and my question is this: what are the sprockets/gearing that came with a stock 1HP model? (edited)

Back in the 80s we were using Yamaha sprkets and going 70mph. Kids these days! How about you get a job and learn something! And I don’t mean how to make a cup of coffee!

When I kit the bike I'm switching out to a 16 or 17 tooth front sprocket and tuning my clutches with kickstart springs. That along with an estoril pipe will give me good bottom end and midrange when riding in traffic
