I got this 1980 Maxi Sport today in N.C. It was a 10 hour drive. The guy was super nice but was not interested in wasting any time answering questions when I put the deposit down on it. It looked really bad then but I was more hopeful when I picked it up. I have had several different Puchs over the years as well as others.
This one has an S on it, not sure what that means. Also no switches on the handlebars. Are the missing? or is this one a stripped down model. Forks are broken but all in all it is complete. Funny thing it has such a deep cover dirt on it, when i wiped it with my finger the paint looks new. The chrome is only surface rust. And under 600 miles total.
I paid too much for it $450.00. However he showed me where he had over 50 interested parties. So far I have not had any luck locating parts for fork rebuild.
Before anything else the seat is perfectly dirty. How should I clean and treat it. thEre is not a crack on it anywhere now.
Can you get rebuild parts for the forks? I'm gonna make sure it runs prior to ordering any parts that dont help me prove that function. Comments?
