I started looking into mopeds recently and found this community. Great stuff on here.
After figuring out the kind of things to look for and what bikes to get, I finally landed on a great deal (thanks, www.crazedlist.org). Today I drove 6 hours round trip and picked up two bikes in pretty beat up shape.
1978 Puch Newport and 1974 Puch (Newport?)
I don't know much about mopeds, or automotive mechanics at all really... But I'm really excited to get started on this and figure it all out. I'm hoping to fix up the 1978 using the parts that I need from the 1974.
Thanks to a lot of people here and some great advice, I've got a pretty good idea of what to do. ... Kind of...
Does anyone have a manual for this bike? I have some Puch manuals but not for the newport.
It looks like I'm going to be on here a good amount, I'm looking forward to being a member of this community here. You are all really helpful and I hope I'll be able to do my part. I'll keep you updated with my progress on these bikes.
