You may have seen some of my posts recently. I bought a 78 puch newport and a 74 puch maxi that were realllyyy beat up. I've never worked on mopeds or cars or anything before. But I wanted a project.

It seemed fun, and god damnit it was fun.

I had lots of questions and for being covered in grease for over a week, I had very little mopedding to show for it.

Today that all changed.

I DROVE IT! WOOHOO! It was really fun, really gratifying, and totally worth it. Now the bike isnt perfect, it's far from it, actually. I don't have a rear brake, I'm missing stuff and there will be more questions to come. But today I rode it.

So, thank you moped army. In the end, the final fix was the point gap. That and the timing may have been a bit off. But it works, and I'm really happy.

Thanks everyone.

Re: Victory!
