Greetings. I'm a new guy from Charlotte NC and have decided to rebuild a moped as a project.

I'm into working on cars and have also done a lot of work on BMX bikes, but this will be my first motorized bike:

I have a friend who is a motorcycle mechanic who can help me out, but he han not done a lot with mopeds.

It's an 85 Puch Maxi (right?)

Is this going to be a difficult bike to find all the pieces I need for? it's a 2 speed.

I'm in the process of tearing it down, I'm sending the frame to my buddy at the motorcycle shop to get the rust out of the tank and re-coat it. I'm going to send all the parts off to another friend of mine's shop to get painted after that,
