Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

Whats up moped army, ive decided to sell one of my mopeds. I just cant decide which one! I have a Tomos targa LX with a techno exhaust and I have a maroon (or burgandy) Puch Maxi (all stock).

The maxi is 1977 and only has 602 original miles and is in excellent shape, maybe the nicest original maxi ive ever seen. The Tomos is green and has 5000 on it, it is fully complete with all fairings and such. Idk im leaning to the Tomos for two reasons, 1) right now its fast (40mph) and 2) it has turn signals.

So which one should I keep?

P.S. No pics of the Maxi but thats my green tomos in the mini boston ride thread if anyone wants to see it.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

what do u use it for if every day then keep the tomos if just some fun every once in a while keep the one u like more

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

turn signals....are you serious.

A maxi will hit 40 no problem.

Keep the puch. Sell the Tomos.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

I'd keep them both. The Maxi is now a collectors item, and you will likely lose money if you sell it. Nice low mileage stock Puchs are going for big bucks these days. Keep the Tomos to ride around on. It has monetary value, but is not irreplacable like the Maxi. Peace. Jerry.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

Sell the Tomos and use the money to kit the Maxi and buy turn signals. You won't be able to replace the Maxi.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

deffinetly keep the maxi. it cant compare it to a tomos, tomos are sick tho. keep that too.. i have a horrible time selling anything too dont worry.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

Turn signals are a big deal when you are riding around a city like Boston and people drive like massholes.

ahhhh IDK now im leaning towards keeping the puch, jeez this is hard. I want to keep them both but space and money is limited. Lol never thought this decision would be this hard.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

Keep the Puch.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

puch is great but tomos rules sorry.

for the city stop and go the tomos 2 speed rules

turn signals,12v,cdi,reeds,rollar bearings

puch can suck up tons $$$$$$$ to install all that stuff on a puch

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

oh my gawwddddd keep the maxi.

or come to st. louis and sell it to one of our crew, I know a couple guys that want a maxi.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

Keep the Maxi, hands down. You can always buy another Tomos in the future...Maxi's wont be so easy to come by.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

keep the Chevette and sell the Cobalt you can always fix the Chevette and have a harder time getting parts and its a collector and ........Wait a minute why??? keep what your happiest with, sounds to me you want to use the moped everyday.....stay with the Tomos.. Let the collectors have the Maxi.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

I would sell my Maxi, but not cheap, and the only reason I would sell it would be to get the money to buy a Moby. Peace. Jerry.

Re: Keep the Maxi or the Targa LX?

Whatever your decision, let me know what you're selling...I'm in the market kinda
