fucking sweet!! yes I said Sweet
Good, but could you at least polish it?- yeesh! ;)
Excellent job. A beaut!
dude, thats awesome. honestly one of the nicest bikes i've ever seen. nice job!
Awesome. I have several old Puchs myself. One day, I'm going to restore all of them. An incredible amount of work went in to hat, that's for sure. Is yours the same one that is on the Main Page of this site? Question, what did you use to polish the engine cases? I've tried a couple of different procedures but haven't been able to get a shine like that! What's your secret?
well done that looks really nice i especially like the white walled tyres, i had a puch m3 back in 2002
i was 16 at the time and needed a learner legal 50, i ended up selling it later that year because it kept seizing up on me and i needed the moeny for another 'more reliable' bike, it was a shame becuase i was the second registered owner (since 1974). after i had sold it i regretted it, so last year i bought an ms50d that ive started restoring hopefully ill be able to take it to the same standard as yours!
this is it at the moment.....
its 1969, and cost me a fortune, like you ive had loads of parts from rinkytoys.nl, Rinke is a top bloke
hi thankyou for all your comments on the bike
firstly i would like to put some more pics up of the bike but im not sure how to do it?
its been pretty hard to restored but thankfully rinke came to my aid!
the engine was polished with a polishing kit the type you put on a drill after that i used diamond paste up to 12000 grade, it took a while to do but i had a 7week wait on the rechrome,
my friend resprayed the bike a bmw colour, but a good match to the original colour.
i always wanted to restore a c50 honda but my friend was given this buy his aunt, she bought it new and did 350 miles on it before she put it in a shed !!
there it stayed till 2007,
thanks again for the great comments
